Home Sharing

A growing number of homeowners are renting out all or a portion of their homes to travel or even quit their jobs to do so. Its part of a growing trend called “the share economy” and its here to stay. Interior designer, Melissa Davis discusses how you can prepare your house to do the same and maximize your retail potential.

How will you differentiate yourself from the competition? The competition includes other homes, but also hotels. Think about if you owned a hotel room – what would you like in that room if you were a guest?

Top must-haves to be the ultimate host! A local guide book you made yourself is both thoughtful and helpful. Include: a map book of restaurants, drycleaners, favourtite shops and stores, where to take the family, or where to go for date night. Paint Provided by: DULUX www.dulux.ca
