How to Make Money with Airbnb by Saving My Photographer’s Fee
Become a wedding photographer is my primary job right now but since 2013 I also think about my future investment till I got a nice friend who tell me about how to make money with Airbnb. You should now that running a property or hospitality business really need money but I only want to open my 2nd business with spending less or small money from my primary business.
1st Property – The Boma House
During that time I only got 2 free rooms in my house, which is better than the Airbnb founder at the first time journey. So on 2013 I open my 1st Airbnb property right here in my own house called Boma House with 2 rooms, 1 room with Air Conditioner for $12 and 1 another room with Standing FAN for $10.
I run this Boma House till now I wrote a story to you and over than 6 years I already accepting over than 600 guests from all around the world. Together with my wife, Nina, we say greetings to our guests during my off photography season and cook for their breakfast right on my hand. Here in my house I start earning for $150 to $250 per month even I just spend couple of bucks before I start Boma House and buy privacy glass sticker to cover my window
2nd Property – Regol Ijo
One day I met my aunty who already retire from her job in Jakarta and I know that she start to having a post power syndrome condition. Actually she owned a house in Yogyakarta which located only 300 meter from the city centre which mean this gonna be more potential for tourism than my own house.
Than I open my 2nd Airbnb Property called Regol Ijo by using my aunty’s house and get 20% of sharing from it. In this house I operate 2 rooms all with Air Conditioning System which costs $17 and $23/night which mean I got more income on this property.
In this 2nd house I also rent a city bike to sightseeing around my city and it brings me $4 for 24 hours bicycle rentals. So true that I also earn more income through this house and it brings $200 to $300 per month for my self.
3rd Property – The Chendela & Sapulu Coffee
This hosting experience is now getting bigger till I got fresh investment from my uncle to built brand new property with great facilities located in the city centre called The Chendela.
In this house I owned 7 awesome and cozy rooms with beautiful garden and small coffee shops right in my terrace and here I earn over than $7,000 cash for each month by renting 7 rooms and selling fresh coffee to all my guests and people who visit my cafe.
My Magazine Report
