I have been listing my 3-room suite in San Francisco, very successfully on airbnb for over a year and a half now. I’ve attained SuperHost status and have maintained it each quarter. I love hosting!
I was contacted by a friend who has a space they would like to rent on airbnb, but they don’t want to do the work. I would be happy to do the hosting duties, but I’m not sure how we should share the profits. In SF, their home falls into the category where they are only allowed to rent their space for periods longer than 30 days each time. The space is a 2-bedroom penthouse condo and I would be doing everything end-to-end for the listing, including:
Create New Listing
Coordinate Cleaning and Linen (I will do the cleaning myself)
Coordinate Repair and Maintenance
Get Home Ready for Guests
Re-Stock Essential Supplies
In-person Meet & Greet
Messaging with Guests and Review
Handle Guest Issues
Update Calendar and Pricing

I have seen that some people suggest charging 20-30% of the booking as the charge for managing the listing. I don’t know if this is customary. Does anyone have input or thoughts on this? What would you be willing to pay?
Set-up listing: I was thinking of charging a flat rate to set up the listing and get it ready. Not sure what that fee should be. Do you have suggestions?
Thank you everyone!
