Property owners interested in sharing space with travelers will learn how to list their properties with Airbnb and start earning income through a two-part training that begins Tuesday, April 23rd.
A partnership between Letcher County Tourism and the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED), the training includes two sessions over the course of two weeks, for a total of six hours. Developed with the guidance of nine Airbnb hosts from across eastern Kentucky and facilitated by an Airbnb superhost, the hands-on workshop will teach participants how to:
• Develop an Airbnb listing
• Market their property
• Comply with local taxes and regulations
• Connect with local tourism efforts for maximum visibility
The typical rural Airbnb host earns $3,300 annually. Property owners keep 97 percent of the listing price when they list with the online home-sharing site.
Training sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 30th from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM in the Pine Mountain Grill banquet room. Food will be provided. Pre-registration is encouraged to help Tourism better prepare.
