Top Tips Creating an Income from Your Surrey Home

Surrey is one of the UK’s most popular destination for people to visit and staying in hotels or B&Bs can become expensive. Airbnb is a firm favourite with tourists or all ages who might prefer the home comforts that short-term rental offers. It’s also an excellent way to earn money if you’d like to become a short-term rental landlord, but it might sound a bit confusing.

How easy is it to make an income from renting out your home in Surrey?

Can I Earn Money by Becoming an Airbnb Host?

The short answer to this is, yes, it’s possible to earn money as an Airbnb host, and it’s not that difficult to set things up. The main thing you’ll need is a property that’s vacant for periods of at least two weeks out of every month. This isn’t a set period, but it makes sense to give yourself time for advertising and possibly moving furniture in and out of your home.

Airbnb hosting makes it possible to make a profit without much investment. You’ll no doubt have periods where your Surrey house or flat is empty. What better way to make a second income than renting it out for the time you’re not there? Airbnb offers a platform for people who want to earn extra money by renting their property out to guests. They’ll walk you through the process, so it’s easy to set up.

And once you start renting your property out, you might see an opportunity to expand this into a full-time career. It will take a lot of research and raising more capital, but the potential here to create a successful business where you’re the boss. Moreover, you don’t have to do the host work yourself. There are professional Airbnb management services, and they’ll do that side of things for you.

Using Man & Van and Storage when Airbnb Hosting –

WH Cox & Son has several customers who work as Airbnb hosts, and the two services they use is a man and van and storage. Due to many of them being new to the short-term rental industry, they don’t have a dedicated workspace. And this is vital for storing furniture and appliances, with many buying specific items for the use of guests. They then move their own possessions from the property before visitors arrive.

By doing this, they don’t have to worry about any damage to their personal belongings. All it takes is a quick removal job, and everything can be in and out within a couple of hours. The typical setup for any Airbnb or similar short-term rental host is to rent a self storage unit and then use a man with a van service for collections.
