Before Tim Hubbard purchased and renovated his small multifamily property in Memphis, Tennessee, the long-term rents ranged from $350/month for the studios to $700/month for the two-bedroom unit. After the renovations, complete with furnishings and Airbnb-ready locks and amenities, Tim began earning revenue of $2,500/month—PER UNIT! How did he do it? What made this particular property perfect for the short-term rental market? Is the Airbnb model right for you?

Tim Hubbard began his career in the hospitality industry before making the transition to real estate. He is passionate about travel, and the Airbnb model allows Tim to visit dozens of countries around the world—while providing the opportunity for others to do the same.
