I got another “tip” from Airbnb that I could make more money doing do non-refundable. It got me thinking that I could possibly do my current prices at non-refundable (I think I would need to raise them in order to compensate for the 10% discount) AND start new listings (carbon copies basically) that were refundable at the 10% higher rate as well. I have been thinking about what to raise my 2020 prices to (I do do a little raise at minimum every year (but usually more often at tiny increments of $1-$2). This would be an opportunity to raise my prices 10% and still make at least what I make now and possibly also get better quality guests (guest quality is my main issue).
On second thought, as I type this out, will they even let me do that? Or maybe they will until someone complains, if someone would have any reason to…anyways, a nascent thought as it just crossed my mind.
