Hi, I am a fairly new host (only rented twice) and have a question. I am getting mostly requests to rent from very young locals who express that they are “down on their luck” who ask to stay weeks or months at a severe discount. I have declined them all and am wondering if there is something I am doing that is attracting this type of guest. I do not mind longer stays but I do not really want to rent to locals. I am afraid they are having “bad luck” for a good reason and are looking to rent from someone who will not research them. AB&B sure does not give you much info on potential guests and these people have only set up their accounts this month and have only 1 or 2 verifications. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
