  • Create a plan for that space, whether it is going to be a studio apartment or just a room or a two-bedroom.

  • Renovate space, fix up the toilet, the room, the tiles and furniture so it looks presentable.
  • Upgrade the decor of that space, including fancy centrepieces, simple lights and if possible consult an interior decorator.

  • Hire a staff that would handle cleaning and laundry either at a token or as a complimentary service.
  • Hire a contact person or a space agent to avoid having your number online.

  • In case your space does not come with a kitchen, have a catering service vendor or a staff that can cook on demand.
  • In terms of pricing, you would have to research via a booking platform on how much a shortlet similar to your space goes for at your current location.
  • It is best to set your short let’s price to something slightly lower than the standard price to build a customer base and also have a discount price.

  • List your space on a booking platform to increase the number of potential customers who see it and also ensure to keep a digital calendar to manage the bookings and the dates available,
