Extra Pack Of Peanuts Podcast 383 Replacing Your Income Using Airbnb with Zeona McIntyre – Part 3 Investing

Zeona McIntyre went from a $12 an hour retail job while side-hustling by renting out her place on Airbnb to owning her own Airbnb property to now having an entire vacation property management company that she runs while still traveling around the world.

This is part three of this series and we get into the investing side of it all. What should you be looking for when purchasing a property for hosting on Airbnb or any short term rental platform? We will be answering the following: investor partnerships vs solo, cash vs financing, turnkey vs work needed, how to keep up with the ever-changing laws and so much more. If you have ever played with the idea of buying an investment property for short term rental then listen closely because we are discussing it all.
