I am considering doing an Air B n B next year. I have a 5 bedroom 2 bath mobile home, which is empty. I am planning to upgrade the mobile home and the 3 acres it sits on to make it into an Air B n B business. I am right near the highway/main interstate and 30-45 mins from Tampa or Orlando.

Both WWE Wrestlemania and the Superbowl will be in my area and I'm thinking this would be a great opportunity to make some extra cash.

Has anyone ever done an Air B -N-B? Tips/suggestions, licenses/insurance needed

I have experience with AirBnB.  The sign-up process is quick and easy.  They supply a million-dollar insurance policy.  Some things to consider are how close you are to the property so you can clean it, change & wash sheets and towels and take care of any issues that may arise--or hire someone close to the property for that.  I would also recommend security cameras on the outside of the property.  One way to determine prices and demand is to look at AirBnB as a traveller and see how many there are in your area.  If there isn't a lot of activity, you can market it as a 'getaway' type destination and/or vacation property for groups or families.  You will also need to decide how people will gain access to the front door and make sure you have secure locks on the bedroom doors for safety and security of your guests.

I have not done it personally but it is something I will get into in the future when I have a place of my own.

It can be a very lucrative business if done correctly and the area you are in gives you a lot of potential to earn money.

I would suggest researching ways to market your property. If you can master the marketing, you can really win with AirBnB.

Nowadays, there are people who have even built entire businesses by renting a property and then re-renting it on AirBnB
