Our Airbnb Journey: Part 1
What a unique era we live in where in the blink of an eye, everything we once knew could change. In moments like these, there are really only two choices, that is to do nothing and fall behind or to adapt to the future and make it to your benefit.
The change that affected us and altered the world as we know it was the emergence of Airbnb. What an opportunity this company has given entrepreneurs like us to take a foothold in the hospitality industry with no end of prospect in sight. Seeing this potential ahead triggered us, ignited us to take action, and to grab our share of this new and exciting industry.
So what was the course Our Flipping Family took to acquire it’s first Airbnb? It all started when our now business partner, Jeff, approached us about 2 years ago with research he was doing on Airbnbs and how the investment done right blows all other forms of investing out of the water. He did not have a lot of real estate experience, and was coming from the tech corporate world, but really wanted to get in on the action. We started brainstorming how we would set ourselves apart from other vacation houses in a very popular Airbnb market. The light bulb idea we had was ultra themed houses, or #extremeAirbnbs. Heck, anyone can decorate a beautiful house but it takes gusto to turn a house into something out of the ordinary.
