In today’s podcast episode I share a number of updates on the things that I’ve been working on during the last few months. Here’s an overview.
* The penthouse in Cali that I purchased last year (first guests booked!)
I recently stayed at my Airbnb penthouse in Cali (Colombia) for about four weeks. I absolutely loved it, the guys at FAR International did a great job. See my Instagram account (@getpaidforyourpad or jasper.ribbers) for the most recent pictures! I haven’t listed it on Airbnb yet, as I’m waiting for a pump to be installed to improve the water pressure in the showers. However, I did get my first booking through FAR International’s client base.
* My recent trip to Egypt where I looked at potential Airbnb investments
Podcast listener Sofia Bak (check out her awesome Airbnb listings near LAX in Los Angeles) notified me of an opportunity near the popular beach resort of Hurghada, Egypt. There are apartments near the beach for sale for as little as $5,000. I flew over to check it out, but I didn’t decide to buy anything.
* A new property management company that I’ve co-founded
I recently started managing properties in the US through a new company, Innhance. I partnered with a few really good friends to offer a short term rental management solution throughout the US. It’s an ambitious plan, but I’m excited and confident we can find a solution for any property.
* The new book that I’ve been working on
My new book, the sequel to Get Paid For Your Pad, will come out in the spring of 2019. The content is almost done and Huzefa and I will be working on the editing and proofreading of the book in the next few months. The book will contain an updated version of GPFYP plus over 45,000 words of new content on how to find profitable short term rental properties around the world, including a detailed description of the properties I bought personally as well as 10 case studies of other investors.
