Transform Your Home Into A Hotel This Year

Transform Your Home Into A Hotel This Year

You might be wondering why on earth you would want to transform your home into a hotel. Well, if you have a few extra rooms in your home, and you’re not using them for anything, why not? You’ll be able to make a lovely profit and you can work from home. Yes, the hours of work won’t exactly be flexible, and you might struggle in off seasons. But hopefully, your partner has a job, and this can just provide a little extra income. It’s a brilliant idea during retirement because running a hotel is more hands off than you’d imagine. We’re not talking about a full hotel of course but rather a high-class B&B. Let’s look at some of the things you’ll need to make this business idea a reality.

The Right Area

If you’re lucky, you are living in a tourist hot spot or at least near to one. An example of this type of area would be Kissimmee in Orlando. It’s the perfect place to own a home for a hotel because it’s within driving distance of all the tourist places. Or, how about Bedford in England. It is just a short train ride from London City Centre. It’s the perfect area to stay if you want to explore the capital of Great Britain. You should do some research and find out if you live in a tourist hotspot. If traffic increases exponentially in the summer season, the chances are that you do.

Curb Appeal

If you want people to stay at your little haven, you do need to make it look presentable. It needs to look like more than a home. The best way to do this is with a little touch of glam and curb appeal. You can add a unique sculpture outside the home to ensure that it stands out from the rest of the street. You may want to add a sign with the hotel name and don’t forget to dress up the area. Plant some exotic flowers and keep everything neat and tidy. Remember, many of your guests might just be driving past, on the lookout for a place to stay.Transform Your Home Into A Hotel This Year

Marketing

If you’re starting a hotel, marketing is going to be of the utmost important. You should look into hiring a professional hotel photographer. They will ensure that your property looks picture perfect on travel sites where you’ll generate the rest of your business. You will need to set up profiles for your property on these travel sites. For some, you’ll need to pay for the privilege. Others, you can set up for free. An alternate possibility would be to establish your own website. You can then use SEO techniques to make sure it gets the necessary interest.

Approval

If your home ready for guests? Not quite because you need to get it inspected and receive that important four or five-star review. Don’t worry if you get less than this. You can market your home as the budget option and still make a great profit with a high influx of guests.
