Earn an Income while using your Investment Property in Melbourne

About Peter, Elwood, VIC

Peter and Katy have a 1 bedroom investment property in Elwood. They engaged Ready Set Host as they had decided to move to Tasmania, and their tenant has just moved out.

This was perfect timing as Katy was still employed in Melbourne and needed to have frequent use of their investment property, while also earning revenue from the property when she wasn't using it.

Peter and Kay engaged Ready Set Host as they didn't have the experience, time or resources necessary to manage their property for short stays residing in Tasmania.

Why Ready Set Host

Katy was using many week days leaving many gaps throughout the year, but Peter also wanted to bring in the best revenue possible for the investment property.

Execution and Delivery

We developed a custom strategy for the property, to allow us to book as many dates as possible and provide Katy with the ability to use the property when she needed.

Results

  • Katy occupied the property for 23% of the time the property was available over 19 seperate stays.
  • The property was booked by guests for 67 nights during that period, with an occupancy rate of 37%, booked around the 19 seperate unavailable dates.

Airbnb Superhost in less than 6 months with Ready Set Host

About ​Lianne & Craig, Cheltenham, VIC

RSH Logo

​The Challenge

​St Kilda is a fantastic location and the apartment is positioned on famous Fitzroy St, buzzing with fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars. It’s a fantastic location attracting both business and leisure stays being only 15 minutes from Melbourne CBD, 5 minutes from St Kilda Road offices and 5 minutes away from St Kilda beach, and right across the road from Albert Park.


It is such an amazing apartment and location, however the Airbnb listing was not living up to its true potential when managed by our competitor, receiving a low review completion rate and low amount of 5-star reviews, and ultimately never reaching the top tier of listings, known as being a Superhost.

Execution and Delivery

​It was our aim to improve the review rating and completion rate through a strategy that included a mixture of price, housekeeping and guest relation changes.   

​Results

  • ​​​12​3% increase in review rating.
  • ​20​8% increase in review completions.
  • Approved as a Superhost in less than 6 months.​
