Short Term Rental E-Design to Fit Every Space and Budget

For the Discerning Short Term Rental Host Who Seeks 5-Star Reviews

8 Seconds…. that is the average attention span of a typical browser. You only have 8 seconds to grab their attention!  Therefore, you need to be showing some pretty outstanding photos of your Short Term Rental in order to catch the eye and get clicks from potential guests. 

If you are currently a STR Host (or wanna-be), I’m sure you’re well aware that the sharing-economy has redistributed the hospitality industry into the perfect opportunity where anyone can run their own hotel out of their home. This equates to  more than 5 million listings worldwide and over 400 million travelers who are using Short Term Rental platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, etc. These sites have never been more popular and it’s getting harder and harder to stand out!

Staging Puts You a Step Above the Rest

As a Short Term Rental Design Authority, I am frequently asked “which application will produce the maximum bookings”? 

The answer… Staging!

Since competition has never been greater in the world of Airbnb and other Short Term Rental properties, if you want to enjoy a steady stream of income, you need to do what you can to make your home stand out.

A Staged space is one of the most effective ways to distinguish your property from all the others, so you can maximize your earnings and build a solid reputation as a Host.

Staging is the Foundation of a Profitable Short Term Rental Operation

If you’re serious about running a successful STR operation, you should be serious about professional property staging.  The majority of Real Estate Listings For Sale are now professionally staged and Short Term Rental properties are NO different.

But you should know that there are MAJOR differences between “Staging to Sell” and “Staging to Rent”. Therefore, you’ll need to make sure you hire a STR Staging Specialist who knows the difference.

Rentals have their own set of circumstances that require a trained designer specializing in STR so that you can avoid common pitfalls.

For example, a STR Stager who has short term rental operational know-how will understand the necessity to furnish hosts with services such as:

  • Providing suggestions on welcome book, amenities, supply/checkout lists, etc.
  • Knowledge on how to balance your property for shorter and longer stays
  • Meeting the new expectations for health and safety in this Pandemic Era
  • Recommend furniture that is comfortable but also has a long lifespan
  • Pinpointing the best linens for freshness and functionality
  • Offer secrets with actionable tips that bring consistent bookings
  • Having expertise creating a space where people will absolutely LOVE to stay!

If a stager with expertise in “Staging Homes For Sale” has staged an Airbnb, I can almost guarantee that the project isn’t ready for guests.  More than likely, this Stager won’t understand the important differences between “Staging to Sell” and “Staging to Rent”. They don’t know what they don’t know… and it will effect your bottom line!

“Catherine’s services helped me so much! Not only do I hate to shop but I don’t even know what to shop for. I told her I needed change, told her what I liked and she nailed it. She saved me a ton of time, I didn’t have to spend a fortune AND my place looks great!” ​

~Joanne Brennan

“Catherine’s vision for my beach vacation rental was nothing short of a masterpiece. Her expertise is superior in design, space planning, vision and implementation. She ‘got’ the style of the space, worked within my budget and guided me through a complete condo remodel. I was thrilled when my booking rates increased and the feedback from guests greatly improved!  I would highly recommend Catherine as your design consultant. She is very experienced and professional, reasonably priced too.”
