Hey listeners, thanks for joining me today to really quick things before I get started one. I recorded this episode while driving and I went back to listen to it. And I think what I had to say was really valuable, but there is some car background noise. So I hope that does not distract you. I just want you to be able to get the goods that came out while I was just driving around and thinking about helping you all and then II do you have a question for me about bringing a
Short-term rental to Market. Do you have any questions at all? If so go over to GinnyTownsend.com on that homepage scroll all the way to the bottom and there is a little record like send a voicemail little button. And so you just click that record your question and I will get an email with that recording and I am happy to make an episode based on the specific questions you have. Okay, let’s get into today’s episode…
What is up Podcast Nation? Guess what? It’s Ginny Townsend and I am in my car again running some errands. It is my daughter’s first birthday today. And obviously, we are not celebrating as we would in a normal season, but I am going to get a couple of special things for her and I’m really really I’m Blown Away by how incredible this first year of parenting has been
Okay, let us dive on in. So today I wanted to talk about why I value one time tasks over all of the different tasks like in my business at least especially so if something is not a one-time task, it is something that needs to be done again, and again and again and a couple of examples of things that need to be done again, and again and again one can be housework. It’s not like
You clean your house. So I like you sweep your floors or something. And then they never have to be swept again. How magical would that be or you know doing laundry? I was just doing some earlier today like yeah, those are things that need to be done again and again and again, like if you do it once and you don’t do it again, like there’s no value to that or you know, I have I’ve been a part of service-based businesses and while it was a lot of fun to be able to work with
clients in different Industries and to be able to help them meaningfully growing their companies. But the thing is you have to keep doing the services to keep getting paid. It’s it’s not like you can just Implement one thing and then it’s just on autopilot or something like that. It it really does need to be managed. You have to do the different, you know, the different Services again and again and again and again, so what I love about
Short-term rentals is the bulk of the work is just a one-time task. So for each property you set up you find the place you gain access you gain control of the place to be able to list on Airbnb whether that is through buying or Arbitrage or or leasing or whatever. The agreement is you gain control of it and then you furnish it you photo you list and then you that’s those are all one time tasks you do.
Don’t have to keep Furnishing it every month. How crazy would that be to furnish it? So Furnishing a place which like I mentioned in this previous episode is where you can 25x your money. That’s really the only difference between having a real estate cash flow. That could be like one two, three hundred dollars a month versus cash flow of $2,500 a month. You know, really? That’s the only difference is it’s furnished. So I consider
To be an enormously valuable one time tasks you do it and then it’s done and then of course the ongoing management of it, I have feel like I can almost hear you say but wait wait wait because it’s short term rental you have guests coming in and then there’s turnover and because they’re not staying a long time, you know, you have to do that over and over. I mean you can and honestly that’s very high dollar per hour work or you can delegate it because the margins are quite generous you can delegate
It and pay your people really well. So what are the tasks that I mean by delegating? One of them is and here’s here. You want to talk about a literal 80/20 messaging potential guests is about 80% of the workload of a short-term rental once it’s live and so finding someone or using some software to be able to just automatically respond with an answer or two.
Clear respond, you know if it’s a person to be able to offload that to pay someone to do the the ongoing you have the tasks that have to be done over and over and over again. I love being able to help other people out. Right? I love that. I think there is just no higher calling than helping people to put food on their table, but that’s just me. I hope actually I hope that’s not just me but you know, and then other tasks obviously cleaning and maintenance. That’s really it. Those are really the bulk.
All of the work that needs to be done over and over and over again, that’s really it. It’s three great people you find three great people and you can offload all of the tasks that you have to do over and over and over again and you can spend your time on the extremely high-value tasks of finding a new short term rental to bring online or whatever or Furnishing the newest short.
Rental, you’re bringing online. Whatever it is. Those are the high-value tasks that you only need to do once that’s why I love them so much. So as you are thinking about well, I assume you’re looking for more passive income strategies and I assume you know that real estate is a tried-and-true method for building not only cash flow but net worth think about the tasks that you can only do once or that you only
need to do once versus the tasks that need to happen over and over and over again. So essentially looking to avoid the tasks that you have to do over and over again or delegate that bring someone in bless them, you know provide great work for other people and then you focus on the one-time tasks the one-time tasks the strategy the big decisions that is very literally where the money is at. All right. Well, I know this is a brief episode but like
I said before why take up 30 minutes of your time if I can share what I want to share in 10. So I hope you have had an amazing week. I hope that you are seriously considering bringing a short-term rental into your income portfolio because that I think is where it’s at that is where it’s at my friends. And if you’re you know, if you’ve decided you know, this is actually a really this sounds like a great idea. That sounds like my best next step, but you’re not sure where to start.
How do you actually find the property? How do you actually you know, if you want to buy it? How how do you approach that investment property? How do you if you want to rent it? How do you approach a landlord wanting to rent it with a short-term rental in mind and then Furnishing it how to furnish it without spending a ton of money right being able to furnish it in a business savvy way and then, you know making a listing that just knocks the socks off of your potential guests and then creating an incredible guest.

I have created a program just for you and you know, what I’ve completed the program. I am so excited to announce that it is live.
