Separating the corporate from the local single hosts s long overdue.
There are now so many rentals in my town that it is virtually impossible to be seen, even when guests are working the map.
I am a superhost who is completely booked for the spring and then virtually nothing for June…peak rental. This is the second year this has happened. I cannot continue on the platform if this continues.
As a guest, I prefer a local, individual host and there are many people who do. It would be simple to add this as a filter for rental requirements.
Having a co-host does not necessarily mean that it is a management company. We have a host and co-host and we do it because while I am the main host if I am for some unforeseen reason not available the other “host” can step in. We both keep up with what is going on and it protects us from things slipping thru the cracks and better customer service. But yes I agree if they are managed by a company it should be identified.
I don’t know. I know my neighbor uses a property management company and it is her picture that displays. You can’t tell she uses a property management company until the booking process starts and they are the ones who reply. She told me she listed them as a co-host.
