In todays ever saturated market it is important to set yourself apart from the competition. There are a few ways to do this. Making sure your Airbnb has unique decor is one way you can have a competitive edge and another is offering something that others are not.

In this blog post I’ll explore 3 easy steps on how you can find out what you can offer to help bring in those bookings.

1. Search like a guest
The first thing you’re going to want to do is think like a guest. Search your listing location and accommodation type and size. Put in a 2 and then 3 night request.

2. Filter is your best friend
Now click on the filter and start ticking off amenities and features, notice how many listings show up for each that are marked. You can play around by ticking off more than one to see if there’s a combo that has low competition.

3. Bingo
When searching for a family stay at Universal Orlando FL, which is a very competitive market, you’ll notice that by filtering down for an EV charger and a dedicated workspace, results narrowed down to only 523 places, which is by far smaller than the +1,000 results. If you mark breakfast you’ll get even less competition! only 197 places and how easy is it to offer breakfast and charge a little more for it. I know that when I travel with kids I would love not having to deal with preparing meals while on vacation.

Going the extra mile with amenities is a small investment that can have a big impact on your chances of getting booked. This is especially true if your listing isn’t a 10/10 appearance wise and especially true in highly competitive markets.
