Here are my top 3 tips for new hosts
- Good communication will save you in the long run. Be transparent about what your listing offers, your expectations as a host, and what the guest should expect from you.

People want to know what they are getting into and you set the tone from the moment they read your description. Adding the extra touches when they arrive at your home adds to your guest experience.
- Find a good cleaner. Especially if you plan to travel while having guests in your home. They should be able to do a walk-through, check for damage, and report between guests. This can be critical if something happens between guests and goes undetected.
