Let’s say you really enjoy renting your own property on Airbnb, and you’ve discovered that you’re quite good at it. It would be awesome to expand your portfolio and become a full-time property manager… But without the capital to guarantee property owners a set income, it can be difficult to talk landlords into letting you list their property on Airbnb. Enter Rented.com.

Harvard graduate Andrew McConnell is the CEO of Rented, a marketplace that connects property owners with a network of 1,000 short-term rental managers all over the world. Through its dedicated rental capital fund, the platform takes on the financial commitment for property managers, providing landlords with guaranteed income as their corporate tenant. Rented currently retains $100M worth of leases in 60 countries on six continents.

Today Andrew explains the premise behind the platform, discussing how an ambitious Airbnb host might leverage the capital provided by Rented to scale a property management business. He shares the benefits of the Rented marketplace for property owners and property managers alike, offering insight into the company’s win-win philosophy. Listen in and learn how to register as a property manager on the platform and increase your conversion rate by as much as 5X!
