How to Minimize Your Airbnb Calendar Turnaround Time
Airbnb will ask you how much notice you would need before a guest arrives. I had customized my cutoff time on the same day before 7 pm. You can have a different cutoff hour. Just be realistic about how long it would take you to clean. I chose 7 pm because regular check-in time for me is at 4 pm. I want to give ample time for my cleaner to turn the unit around for the next guest.
Now, why do I do this?
It is to maximize profit. If I had selected 1, or 2 days, that means Airbnb will automatically block up to 2 days after my guest checks out. This also means you will lose those two available days to host.
