It’s your pictures.

Providing a property description that’s is at least 300 words long, but writing a great description can be difficult. Consider hiring the service of a professional copywriter – this is one of your best investment not an line item expense.
Taking Your Business to The Next Level

Up-charges, inaccurate rates and double bookings will not leave a good taste in the prospective traveler’s mouth.
If your listing hasn’t been updated in months, travelers will be less likely to inquire about booking with you period.
Look at this way – put yourself in a prospective traveler’s shoes.
When you reach out to a homeowner about renting their property, would you feel comfortable booking if you didn’t hear back for 3-5 days? Probably not.
What would that say about their response time to issues that may arise during your stay and their overall attentiveness as a host?
