Did you know that the number  of people turning to choosing Airbnb for lodging  in Maine has almost doubled from two years ago?

The instructor, herself an AirBnB owner, has interviewed many other Airbnb  or VRBO owners and put together a packet with good information, tips and actual stories of unusual events in the life of a short term landlord.   

This course will address issues dealing with ordinance, insurance, expectations, fees, hosting, guests, safety, communication, neighbors  and more.
