best airbnb management tools 2020

 

Running an Airbnb requires the same skills as running a small business. If you’re not organized, things can easily slip through the cracks. A misstep on crucial parts of the vacation rental process can lead to unhappy guests, or worse – problems during tax season

Here are 4 of the best Airbnb management tools that can help you keep your business on track and elevate your rentals in 2020. 

 

Guesty

Guesty is one of the most popular Airbnb management softwares on the market. One of the main draws is a 24/7 guest hotline that can manage communications with your guests even while you’re unavailable. This can considerably lessen the pressure on you as a host and provides a backup plan for times when you can’t respond. 

Guesty offers tools for every step of the vacation rental process. From analytics to see how your listing performs to a unified inbox for guest correspondence, this software is designed to help you perform better. Pricing varies depending on your specific business needs, so talk to their team if you want a quote. 

 

Expensify

Expensify is an app that allows you to easily keep track of all of your receipts, making it easier than ever to stay on top of your business spending. Using it is simple: Just take a picture of the receipt and the app will pull all the relevant information for you. No need to worry about making a typo when entering all of those numbers!

In addition, Expensify can automatically categorize your receipts and you can sync it with most accounting software tools for a streamlined process. It’s just $5 per month per user which is well worth the price if you rack up a lot of monthly expenses. 

 

Wunderlist 

Hosting comes with a long list of responsibilities and if you’re not organized, some of them won’t get done. Wunderlist allows you to create any number of to-do lists and share them with other users, making it ideal for collaborating with co-hosts if you have them. 

You can set deadlines, add notes, and set up reminders so no task gets left behind. The business plan is $4.99 per month for each user, which is a small price to pay for the perks you get. 

 

Quickbooks

In order to keep your business in the green, it’s vital to manage your finances correctly and efficiently. Quickbooks allows you to keep track of your expenses, send invoices right from your phone, set up automatic payments for recurring charges, and stay on top of your financial documents. 

The most popular plan is their Plus option, which is $35 per month. It allows for up to 5 users and features mileage tracking, time tracking, contractor management, and more. They also offer plans as low as $12 per month if you don’t need the full range of services. No matter the plan you choose, tax season will be a lot easier with Quickbooks on your side. 

 

While hosting can be a big job, there are plenty of ways to stay organized if you have the right tools. The right software can go a long way towards helping you get ahead. If you take the time to incorporate these apps into your rental business, you’re sure to reach new heights in 2020.

Testimonials

At first I tried to take care of all of the cleaning process myself, and it turned out to be a bigger headache than anything else. So a friend told me about MaidThis and its been fantastic. I’ve been working with my cleaners for a few months so far. I recommend you check out the service for yourself.

I definitely think that as a company we've been able to make more money, not only because we're saving money by using Maid This, but also because they're helping take a few of the necessary evils with doing vacation rentals off of the property managers plate.
