Emanuele Pani is a real estate investor, Co-Host of the STR Secrets Podcast and Partner at Domu Private Investments. He’s also been in the vacation rental game for 10 years and has been helping new hosts transition into this emerging market. In light of the pandemic’s effect on the travel industry, vacation rentals have been one of the more resilient segments compared to hotels.
What’s important to note in this episode is that many people in the hotel industry already have the skills needed to be incredibly successful as vacation rental hosts but simply don’t know where to start. Emanuele shares great information about the industry and how to get started. He’s also got an offer at the end of the show for listeners who want to get started as an Airbnb host.
By the end of the episode, I think you’ll see that there are directly transferable skills that you as a hotel professional already have that you can leverage right away.
