#26: How to Save Time & Money When Furnishing an Airbnb Property with Sage Nathan

You’ve heard it before: quality furnishings can help you attract more guests and receive positive reviews, which means you can increase your property’s revenue.

But actually, finding those quality furnishings that fit with your design plan and within your budget can be a challenging (and super time-consuming) task. That’s where having the right tools and systems can make a huge difference.

In this episode, I’m thrilled to welcome Sage Nathan, Partnerships Manager at Minoan. We chat it up about how Minoan helps short-term rental hosts save time and money when furnishing a property – and how they can actually help a host generate incremental revenue from their short-term rental, too!

Sage tells us about how Minoan works with its partners to offer curated furniture packages that are designed specifically for Airbnb hosts who want to make the most of their investment in their short-term rental properties by getting more bookings without having to spend all their time hunting down quality furnishings.
