How to Sell Your Airbnb Business (Ep472)

How to Sell Your Airbnb Business (Ep472)

With larger property management companies looking to add to their portfolios, we're seeing more Airbnb entrepreneurs selling their businesses.

But what can you do to structure your business to ensure it's an attractive acquisition target?

Julie George discovered the world of Airbnb in 2016 when she listed her one-bedroom unit on the platform. In November 2016, she established Host My Home, one of Australia's largest Airbnb property management companies. In 2019, Julie sold her lucrative business to a larger company to concentrate on mentoring and consulting other budding entrepreneurs to build a business in the sharing economy.

On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Julie joins me to explain the process she went through as she prepared her business for sale and how you can structure your business, so it's attractive to buyers.

Julie says, “If you've got ten or more properties that you are managing in a property management portfolio, get ready! You're going to get a knock on the door. I can almost guarantee it.”

Listen in for Julie's insight into why NOW is the time to be sure you've structured your business so it's attractive to buyers—even if you're not currently thinking of selling.
