Living Like a Short-Term Rental King in Paradise (Ep461)

Living Like a Short-Term Rental King in Paradise (Ep461)

We talk a lot about growing short-term rental (STR) companies. But what happens when we grow our businesses quicker than we anticipate?

Six years ago, Alex Cybul had no Airbnb experience, decided to get into the STR industry, and quickly grew his business, VacationAruba.com.

Today, Alex manages over 100 units.

On this episode of Get Paid For Your Pad, Alex joins me to discuss how he got his start renting out Airbnbs in Aruba and how he managed to grow his business quickly over six years.

He shares insights on what he would do differently if he had the chance, how he structures his team to manage his properties successfully, and why he recommends dynamic pricing to all STR managers.

Listen in to learn more about the importance of leading people to successfully grow STR your business.
