Make Your Home More Rentable With Free Professional Photography

Airbnb now offers hosts to have their listings accompanied by free professional photo in an effort to attract renters.

Airbnb now offers hosts free professional photos to accompany their listings. Airbnb is an online service that allows people to rent out a room, apartment or the whole house for short-term stays. In an aim to help hosts attract more renters, Airbnb now provides professional photographers to come and shoot your home. This photography service has been successfully trialled in more than 13,000 properties in 383 cities and with a network of over 1,000 professional photographers.

The listing with the professional photos will also be accompanied by a ‘verified’ ribbon. Airbnb claims listings with verified-photos are 2.5 times more likely to be booked and the host can also expect to gross $1,025 in bookings per month. The more bookings also translates to more revenue for the start-up company.
