Currently I’m renting out my guest bedroom as private room on ABB and I’m doing quite well. Next month I’m going overseas so considering renting out the entire place for that period. It’s exactly the same place as I’m going to lock up my personal belongings in master bedroom so it’s still a one bedroom listing (but I guess I can charge a little bit more for entire place).
The problem is that I can only make a brand new listing which means I loose all my rating and reviews so far and have to start from very beginning. Quite a struggle for me to stand out in the over saturated market.
So I’m considering if I can transfer some of my current reservations to that listing to get reviews. Of course I’ll explain to my guests and maybe offer them a discount. I can see “change the reservation” option there and it looks feasible. But still wish to confirm before I go ahead.
Anyone has tried this way to boost new listing before?
Will I get penalized by ABB?
Any advices very much appreciated.
