13 | From 1 to 100+ Short-Term Rentals | with Charles Hawkins
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to have more than one listing? Have you ever wanted to be an Airbnb host... but you don’t own any real estate? Want to know what it’s like to manage over ONE HUNDRED properties?
Well, you’re in luck! Because, today, we’re talking to Charles Hawkins, the owner of STR Capital. He has scaled his short-term rental management business from just one (messy) property to over one hundred (beautiful) properties in the Columbus area – and he’s still growing!
Charles believes that each city has its own memorable experiences. So, as short-term rental hosts, our responsibility is making each guest feel at home in our city, whether it’s by trying a favorite local restaurant or hanging out with some of the locals. He shares what it takes to scale a short-term business, even if you don’t own the properties, as well as what it takes to keep track of so many properties.
