Has anyone used furnishing services for their AirBnB? Or provided those services?
A friend and I are getting started with a new AirBnB and she is footing all of the costs and I"ll be the Property Manager. I’ll be charging 20% of bookings and doing basically everything other than pay the bills- finding cleaning staff, managing the web presence, interacting with guests, etc.
I’m also going to be choosing all of the furnishings, transporting them, building and arranging, etc. All with an emphasis on saving start-up costs by purchasing whatever I can from consignment and thrift stores, craigslist, etc. Ill also be DIYing some of the furnishing and art.
What I don’t know is what I should be charging for the work of getting the place set up. I know Property Management companies will offer this service but the only way to get a price quote for comparison is to submit a request.
Does anyone have ideas for what I should charge? I’ve run some numbers and estimated that I’ll be saving
her about $4,000 based on the cost of furnishings if I were to walk into a traditional furniture store and buy everything, and that’s with using conservative estimates of what the furnishings would cost.
I thought about charging $30 and hour bc that’s what I make at my full time work? But maybe a flat fee makes more sense?
