Apartment Slow this season after 2 years of good bookings

Our place on Lake Norman has been surprisingly slow - after 2 years of consistent booking - our other property is busy and booked but this one - lower level of our home is slow-- we lowered our price by $20 per night and knowcked $10 off cleaning fees - it is listed with Airbnb and VRBO – any suggestions to juice it up??

I suggest that you start by searching (using any anonymous browser) for your Airbnb and VRBO competition. See what they offer that you don’t.

Lowering the price is rarely the answer. By making yourself into a bargain rental, you’re doing yourself no favours - I prefer to add value.

Only OTAs? I know it’s not for everyone but I would hate to rely on OTAs but prefer to have some control by blogging, networking, social media etc.

People are hesitant on shared space right now, especially when there are lots of other choices. Make it clear that it has separate HVAC without crossover ( if it does ) etc. Make it clear how intrusive the sharing will be.
Otherwise just wait for covid to end.


I think BINGO. By mid-summer your guests will probably be back
