Recently I found a website called Furnished Finders. The website states “Furnished Finder is a short-term housing provider for travel nurses and other business travelers who need furnished housing. We boast a 92 day average stay, and are major data providers for corporate housing coordinators and medical staffing companies across the US.
Property owners list their available short-term apartments on Furnished Finder, as healthcare travelers command a consistent appetite for traditional corporate housing and alternative housing types alike.”
The cool thing about this site is you pay an upfront fee of $99 and then you become one of their listings. You fill out your information, price and list the medical centers, hospitals, etc near you. Then, once you publish your information, you have guests contact you. They will have a stay that is about 90 days long but if you have an extra room and want a guest, it might be the way to go.
The best thing of all is – no Airbnb fees. You decide on the price and contact the potential guest before accepting the reservation.
You have WAY less competition than other places (Airbnb.com, VRBO.com) and more immediate interaction.
You will also have an income that is between you and your guest. Only you and your guest.
Check it out. You might like it.
