This has actually been going well consistently, have hosted over 30 trips (first one stayed a long time, then we made changes.) and I’m almost a Super-Host (4.8 overall rating, only 83% of 30 reviews are 5-star, 97% commitment, …not because of 1 cancellation in January).
Meanwhile, I continued my job search, and will begin training sessions tomorrow for my new job. I DO want to host the people who are currently booked with us, but not get additional bookings, for the time being, as I adjust to my new job.
I don’t want to lose our current stats though. What is appropriate action for me to take?
I haven’t studied the implications of the snooze feature. I’d set up a big unattainable price like $500, at least until you see how the new job works out. In 2-3 months, it’ll can be further changed based on how things are going.
I do not believe that snoozing affects current bookings. Your cancelation remains on your “report card.” The problem with the unattainable price is that you might still be responding to inquiries and you will have a live listing with no new bookings which would lower your listing rank.
I’ve snoozed one of my listings. Current reservations stay however the unit doesn’t appear on current searches for new bookings. I’ve set my snooze to end 1/1/18. Before 1/1, I will decide if I want/need to continue listing that unit for rentals or if I want to keep my listing out of seaches a bit longer.
