About This Episode

Meet Alex Breen, founder of BnB Buyer — a biweekly newsletter that brings subscribers a list of new Airbnb and other short term rentals that are for sale.

Alex grew up vacationing in short term rentals —  in fact his family was an early adopter of VRBO. 

One afternoon, while Alex was in Dublin, his parents were scouting out second homes around Lake Norman in North Carolina. 

They stumbled upon an incredible home for sale and, after speaking with the realtor, discovered that the home was being used as a short term rental.

Knowing that there was a reputable history of bookings gave Alex’s family the confidence they needed to purchase the home.  And it was this experience that sparked the idea for what would become BnB Buyer.

This week's episode is brought to you Guesty for Hosts — the bestie of top-rated Airbnb hosts. 

It’s 11:32 pm on a Thursday night and you wake up in a panic. 
 
You forgot to send your guests the custom lockbox combination for your Airbnb, and you missed the 17 messages they sent saying they couldn’t get in because you enabled “sleep mode” on your iPhone — you know, to try and cut down on screen time before bed and all.
 
After apologizing profusely and sending them a bottle of bubbly — in hopes they won’t leave you a 1-star review — you think to yourself, “how do other hosts stay on top of guest communications?"
 
The answer? They use Guesty For Hosts — an easy to use rental management platform. With features like Automated Messages that send important communications to guests at the exact right times…you'll never have to jeopardize your beauty sleep again.

The platform also has features that help you manage cleanings, build a custom booking website, and so much more.
