Setting realistic expectations with a detailed profile and accurate listing information is an important hosting responsibility. A full description with photos and specific details on property features will give production teams the confidence they need to request a booking.
Create an Accurate Listing
A well-described listing helps renters get a realistic sense of your space. Here are five tips to help your property shine:
- Nail the basics. Write a detailed description and make sure to accurately represent all of your property's features.
- If certain areas of your location are off-limits, let renters know. You should also inform renters if basic features such as cellphone reception or running water are not available on the property.
- If you have specific property rules, such as 'No Animals Allowed' or 'No Alcohol' address the situation in your listing. If your property has a maximum occupancy let the production crew know in advance.
- Be straightforward about the potential inconveniences that renters may encounter. Controlling sound on set is incredibly important for productions. If you have a neighbor that likes to play drums in his garage, or a nearby gardener that always cuts the grass on Wednesdays it's important to mention it.
- Take a lot of high quality photographs. (Click here for our photography guide)
