How can you make sure you never have another party in your Airbnb property? Find out 3 ways to optimize your listing today!
Today we are going to look at what you can do to make sure you never have another party again in your Airbnb property. This information is going to be really valuable and make sure you have a lot less headache in your listing if you’re a property owner, and if you’re a property manager, this is a very valuable skill you can learn because it offers a lot of value for your property owners. You can help them maintain good relationships with their neighbors and avoid unnecessary damage to the property.
The first step to make sure you never have any parties in your Airbnb is to optimize your listing for the right type of guests. There are a few key things you can do to adjust your listing to make it less attractive for people that are looking for a party. The title, photos, and description should be attractive to your ideal type of guests: a family, a business traveller, or whoever that ideal guest might be. One specific thing you can do to make it undesirable for partiers is to have a 2 night minimum stay. That means that anyone searching for a one night reservation wouldn’t even see your property as an option.
While not every single one night stay causes problems or is a party, most stays that do cause issues are the one night stays. We have found that on most properties and in most areas, this has a net positive impact on overall revenue by setting the minimum stay to 2 nights. One other advantage to that is that you won’t be having a random one night stay in the middle of the week that would prevent someone from booking a one week stay.
Step 2 to avoiding parties at your property is to make your house rules crystal clear and include in them that the security deposit will be collected in full in the event of any parties regardless of damages. That way, any potential party thrower would look at the listing and realize that it would cost them an extra several hundred dollars to throw a party at your property versus somewhere else. The third step I would really recommend is to screen your guests. There are a few things that should set off red flags when a person wants to book a property. For example, if a local person is booking the property for a one night stay. That definitely raises the question of why they’re wanting the property – while they might have a legitimate reason for the stay, it also could mean that it’s for a party. Now, Airbnb itself doesn’t allow local bookings for one night stays for anyone under 25 that don’t have a good track record on Airbnb, but we can still be mindful and cautious even if a potential guest is over that age limit.

Before we dive into it, I just want to tell you about a couple things up front.

Now with that being said, let's jump right into it, I want to tell you about the first step that you can take to make sure your property does not have any more parties in the future. Step number one is to make sure that your listing is set up every single aspect of it to optimize for the right type of guests. Now this may seem pretty obvious, but there's a couple things that I'll point out in specific that I mean by this a couple of key things that you can do to adjust your listing right now to make it attractive for people that are looking to book a party.
Now number one is to make sure the title, the photos and the listing description are all really attractive to your ideal type of guests. Whether that's a family, whether that's someone that's a traveling business person, whoever the ideal guest might be just really tailor the entire listing towards them. Now one specific thing you can do to make it undesirable for people that want to throw a party is to give yourself a two night minimum stay on the property. If you set your minimum state to two nights, then that means that anyone searching for a one night reservation, they're not going to even see your property show up in the search results.
Now what's great about that is that 99% of all parties are going to be booked as a one night stay. Now it's not to say that every single one night state is going to cause issues. But it is to say that almost all issues are going to come from one night stays. So if you're up to it, then just set your set your minimum night stay to two nights. And what we found is that on most properties in most areas, this actually is going to have a net positive impact on your overall revenue.
Yes, you will be giving up some of those one night stays that you might have gotten however, the benefit is that you're not going to get one night stays in the middle of the week that prevents someone from booking a longer term Monday to Friday booking let's say. And so what we found is that contrary to what we thought we initially initially implement this on some of our properties, we actually got more overall revenues by doing this.
So I highly recommend that you at the very least test this out for yourself and see how it impacts your bookings, because it is very much going to eliminate a lot of parties at your property. And the next step is to make your house rules crystal crystal clear this is step two, make sure that you have a security deposit in place and make sure that you set on your house rules that the security deposit is going to be collected in full in the event of any parties regardless of damages.
This way a potential partygoer knows or party thrower I should say knows that if they book your property, they're going to have to pay an extra several hundred dollars to be able to throw a party there versus the other property that they're looking at on the platform, it makes it a lot easier for them to just go ahead and book that other property, knowing that they're not going to have to be on the hook for a couple hundred dollar security deposit because of the party that they throw. Again, it's act as a really great deterrent against potential party throwers, for your listing.
The third thing that I highly recommend doing in addition to optimizing your listing, setting a two night minimum stay having a security deposit and really clear house rules is to make sure that you're screening your guests, there should be a couple of things that will set off red flags for you when you see them booking at your property. Now a couple of these Airbnb has actually implemented in their own system site wide are not allowed. But for example, if we see someone local is booking our property for a one night stay.
That's not to say that it's going to be an issue for sure that they're definitely going to be there to throw a party but it definitely raises up a red flag. flag and causes us to question that person more as to why they're booking our property. Now, certainly they could be just renovating their home and need a place to stay during that renovation for one night while there's going to be a lot of dust or whatnot. However, they could also just be booking for a party. And so we really want to check into that.
Now Airbnb is going to not allow this to happen for local bookings for one night stays for anyone 25 and under who don't have a good track record on Airbnb, but we still want to be mindful that even if someone is 2627, and books for that one night stay, it doesn't mean that they suddenly have grown out of partying and are knocking through a party, we still want to be a bit cautious with these types of bookings.
And the fourth and final thing that you always want to do that's an absolute must to avoid parties is to smash the like button, just make sure that you go ahead and smash the like button for the YouTube algorithm. click that like button it helps me out tremendously in putting together videos like this, it helps me a lot so that more people can see these I can help to grow this channel even further.
