Q: I want to list a room in my home on Airbnb. What steps do I need to take in order to do so?

Your first step is to check with the city/township where you live to find out which rules and regulations apply to an Airbnb situation.

Secondly, call your agent. Every carrier has a different stance on short-term rentals. We will need to know:

  • Which is being rented – room or house?
  • For how long (nightly/weekly/monthly)?
  • Frequency (summer only/year round)?
  • Will you be staying there while it is rented?
  • What is the projected income?

There may be follow-up questions but this is a good place to start. We are excited to assist you in your new venture!
