One reason I love Airbnb is that you can use it in so many different ways. You can rent out a spare room, rent out your home when you’re on holiday, rent out a vacation home full-time or even sleep on the couch in your living room and rent out your bedroom. Yes, I know someone who does that :).
But you can also build a business around Airbnb. And that’s exactly what today’s guest has done. Eric Moeller is the CEO of Homtel, a technology driven luxury short-term rental leasing and hosting company based in San Diego, CA. He’s also the host of the Airbnb Mastery Summit and the creator of co-host mastery.
Eric has used several business models to build his hosting business in San Diego. He has used the re-leasing model, purchased his own units, managed units for other hosts and he has partnered with investors using his co-hosting model. In short, he’s killing it. I’ve been following his journey and if there’s anyone I would want to learn from it´s him.
That’s why I invited him back on the podcast. I spoke to him in an earlier episode and it turned out to be one of the most popular episodes that I’ve published.
In this episode we talk mostly about Eric´s new co-hosting business model and how it´s different from the other models. Eric developed the model in response to stricter Airbnb regulations that popped up in San Diego. They no longer allow hosts to have several units on Airbnb.
We also speak about what hosts can do when they find themselves in a similar situation. For example, one of the listeners asked about Long Beach, where new regulations are probably come into effect soon.
=> Join Eric Thursday November 1st at 5pm PST for a live training and learn how to build an Airbnb business without leases, security Deposits, or owning property.
