We’re new to Airbnb, location is just across from Manhattan. We rented out a separate apartment as proof of concept for a few weeks and it went well. We got very good ratings - almost 5 stars, and met some nice people. We earned enough to pay for small appliances, a nice bed, TV, etc. and have a net profit, even including taxes owed. Going forward that apartment has been rented as a standard yearly lease - so no longer available on Airbnb. We have another floor in our house that has a bedroom that will be offered soon on Airbnb.
Can we use the same listing, but update to “Private Room” with the new photos and changes in amenities, or does it have to be an entirely new listing? The street address is the same. We worked hard for the nice reviews and would hate to start over again. Of course the description of the new space will be 100% accurate.
