Airbnb is growing in popularity and becoming more and more a preferred choice when travelling. There are even ways of earning miles when staying at an Airbnb or hosting guests.
With a growing number of properties for guests to choose from it’s becoming more and more important to offer them a high quality home for their stay.
Service companies like GuestReady who claim to be the best Airbnb management company in London, can help you be a better host and get amazing reviews, which are key to running a succesfull Airbnb ‘business’, when you don’t have time to deal with your Airbnb property yourself.
I have myself stayed at Airbnbs in America, Germany, France and the UK and have noticed that some hosts have very low standards when it comes to their property. My worst experience was a rather pricey studio flat in Paris which looked amazing in the pictures. When we arrived there was dust everywhere, chipped paint and a broken shower door. We then had handymen showing up unannounced at 8am on a Saturday to fix said door – trust me, they did not get a good review!

What does GuestReady offer its clients?
GuestReady‘s aim is to help hosts make the most out of their Airbnb property, while decreasing their workload. The company does everything from creating your listing with professional photos to approving and communicating with guests, checking them in and offering a 24/7 guest support service.
As many hosts don’t necessarily know how much they can charge, the management service offers pricing optimisation for every host. You may find that you have not been asking as much as you could.
To give the properties a hotel-like touch, your home will be supplied with premium linen and toiletries.
GuestReady also provides a high quality vetted cleaning service. Your house or flat will be returned to perfect condition, either for your own return from holiday or for your next guest.
How much does Airbnb management cost?
GuestReady doesn’t charge any sign-up fees unlike some of their competitors. Instead it works on a comission basis. Homeowners pay a fee of either 12% or 20% depending on the services included. This ensures a low risk to hosts as they only pay when they earn money.
Depending on the property homeowners can also agree that GuestReady pays the host a pre-determined monthly income which passes the risk of voids and periods of low pricing from the homeowner to the management company.
How do I get started with GuestReady?
The sign-up process can be done quickly and depends on the homeowners availability.
There is a property income calculator on the GuestReady website which helps hosts see the true potential of their property.
If you are interested in using the Airbnb management service , you will be contacted by a member of the team who will arrange a personal meeting at your property to discuss further steps.
