Housing has always been thought of as a kind of ‘sustainable’ investment financially; a source of return in an investor’s portfolio that offers consistent reward with very little risk. Looking at the data, the inflation-adjusted annual yield for housing has been at an average of 7.05% since 1870; bonds, for the purposes of comparison, have hovered around 2.5%, while the market volatility in the housing space has been considerably less. Something that doesn’t often come to mind is sustainability in the housing market as it pertains to the environment, with things like eco-friendly Airbnb rentals. Savvy hosts would benefit from making investments in this, just as they’ve made savvy investments in real estate.
For hosts hoping to lessen their environmental impact, cater to earth-friendly guests, and lessen their expenses to improve their bottom line, hosting an eco-friendly Airbnb is your answer for success. Not only will incorporating eco-friendly amenities in your Airbnb attract more guests, but the improvements will help reduce your utility bills and improve your margin each month. Those two benefits, plus the fact that you’ll be cutting down your carbon footprint, make eco-friendly Airbnbs a win all around!
There are countless ways to make an eco-friendly Airbnb, some of which are “quick wins”, and some which may take more time or investment to implement. Below, we’ve broken them down for you.
Don’t stop here, though — stay up-to-date on the latest earth-friendly technology and advancements to be sure to keep your eco-friendly Airbnb updated.
