Yeah... What galls me is that you're not even a real host. You're some guy with 7 days worth of time to dump on the open market, and you think the only way to do that is by being the cheapest whore on the block.
Think about Jaquo for a moment. She's in this full time. She's got 365 nights to fill, and she needs to receive a fair return for her investment. I don't know what her actual numbers are, but just look at it from this perspective.... Suppose she's got a condo that costs her $130 a day in fixed and variable costs to operate. She's priced her condo fairly at $150 a night, and works her ass off to earn that $20 a day difference between her income and expenses.
You have no clue as to the real value of your timeshare. All you know is you are spending way too much money on something you can't sell, and don't want to spend any time in, so you advertise it on AirBnB for a hell of a lot less than it costs you to own and operate. You just want something... anything... to offset a lifetime of losses you've obligated yourself to. So you price your timeshare at $100 per day.
Your listing shows up right next to Jacquo's listing. Those listings are live 365 days a year. Even when you have sold your seven days, potential guests see your $100 a day listing and think Jacquo is overcharging. AirBnB sees that you're charging $100 a day, and sends Jacquo a note.... Hey Jacquo... There's a new whore in town... Looks like you need to lower your rate. "But... But... But... I'm not a whore... I'm a legitimate businesswoman" replies Jacquo "Doesn't matter" replies AirBnB... "He's lowering the bar for everyone, and we think you should act like a cheap whore too"
Why don't you advertise on Craigslist? You can whore out your seven days... your guests don't have to pay AirBnB Booking Fees... you can raise your rates... and when you've sold your week, you can delete your ad, so Jacquo doesn't have to justify working her ass off for the twenty bucks a day she earns. Face it... YOU are not "The Competition" YOU are an Albatross, hanging from Jacquo's neck.
