Jasper Ribbers Airbnb Expert and HostIn this episode, it was my pleasure to welcome Jasper Ribbers from the well known podcast Get Paid For Your Pad. Jasper is a well known Airbnb expert and Airbnb host. He has made a good living renting out his apartment in Amsterdam on the Airbnb platform. So much so, it has allowed him to travel the world and stay in many different Countries absorbing the culture for an extended period of time.

I thought it would be great to have him on the show and breakdown the Airbnb business model from a real estate investors point of view.

From purchasing the property to getting your first booking. Jasper takes us on a step by step walk-through on how real estate investors who purchase property in South Florida can use Airbnb as a business model to get a good return on investment.

If you have ever used Airbnb in your travels and wondered how you can setup your own Airbnb business with your investment property. Then you are in for a treat and I promise this episode will not disappoint!
