Meet Kay, San Diego.

Kay owns and lets a studio flat which, though separate, is attached to her own home.

The space was previously used only by visiting friends and family, but with Houst’s help is now also rented by paying guests year-round.

Houst does the vetting of prospective guests, confirms the booking, provides the cleaning and laundry service, and then deposits the net earnings in my account.

Q&A

Do you enjoy hosting guests?

“Yes, I put work into each booking I get. I add treats and snacks for guests and will give them my personal contact information in case they need anything urgently. I think the personal touch from an owner is important and makes it rewarding for me, but I wouldn’t want to host without the backup and work of Houst.”

Has anything gone wrong?

“Naturally there have been glitches, but nothing major. Having a good manager who works with me and the cleaning crew is essential and Paige is exceptional at her job. That’s the truth - it could not work without that back-up.”

What do you do with the extra cash?

“I’m retired, so the additional income is really useful for living expenses, bills, and travel. I can afford to travel and see my two granddaughters a bit more regularly too! I’ve only been with Houst around six months but I’ve made $6000 so far from a small studio.”

“It's been a wonderful experience. Letting a house that would normally be empty has given us an enormous source of income.”
