When you have a question about your short-term rental (STR) business, where do you go? Do you run a Google search and then spend several hours sifting through the information? What if you had a community of experienced Airbnb hosts you could go to for knowledge, inspiration and support?
Phillipe Thibodeau is the real estate developer and STR host behind Strawberry Stays, a vacation rental and property management company out of Montreal, Canada. His experience as a host began with a single unit in May of 2017, and now he and his business partner are growing their portfolio quickly—with plans to secure a total of 80 listings in the next 12 months!
On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Phillipe joins me to discuss the pros and cons of self-learning versus being part of a community.
