how much rent to charge for Airbnb?

This is something you will need t research before you post your property.

Please search in the same area in which your property will be in and match the amount rooms and bathrooms. This will give you a good good guide of what others may be charging.

The price you charge for your listing is completely up to you. To inform your decision about what price to set, you can search for comparable listings in your city or neighbourhood to get an idea of market prices.

Additional Fees

  • Cleaning fee: You can either incorporate a cleaning fee into your nightly price or you can add a cleaning fee in your pricing settings.
  • Other fees: To charge extra fees outside of your rates (like a late check-in fee, pet fee or bike rental fee), you must first disclose these potential charges to guests prior to booking and then use the Resolution Centre to securely request payment for additional fees. Airbnb is not responsible for the collection of payments on your behalf that are not incorporated into your pricing.

f you’re renting out an entire place versus a room, this is easier to compute. Figure out your monthly cost (whether it’s mortgage, rent, etc.) and add your average utilities expenses (electric, gas, water, internet, cable and anything else). Divide that number by 30 (the average number of days in a month) to find your cost out of pocket for each night.

Let’s say your rent is $800 (which includes heat and hot water), you pay $35 a month for electricity,  and $60 for Internet and cable.

$800 + $35 + $60 = $995 ÷ 30 days = $33.16 per night

That’s probably the minimum you want to charge, unless you’re just looking to break even. But once you know your basic costs, you can decide how much you want to make on top of that. Take a look at similar listings in your area and see what they’re charging. This can help you establish a reasonable range to see how much you can expect to charge.
