I have been renting the lower part of my house out on airbnb for a few months now. Generally I have someone stay every week for one or two nights, nothing too much but a little bit of interest. Last night I got a request from a girl from Taiwan who wants to stay for 7 months, which comes out to $12,000. I haven’t approved her yet, all her message said was she was from Taiwan and was wondering if we are convenient to the university. I have never had anyone want a long term stay before, and am wondering if this could be too good to be true? Is there any scams or something about that I don’t know about and may be walking straight into?
I can’t see much on her profile, there’s a picture and her first name and school. It also says she has email, phone and facebook verified. I guess if I accept her I will be able to see more? I’m finding the Airbnb profile system tricky at the moment, either none of my guests fill out more than a profile picture or Air is hiding them somehow…
Anyway, should I just accept her and see how it pans out?
