So now what? There is no point in waiting, I prefer to take action myself. I have already sold one of my apartments. The second mini-apartment is now for sale.
Everything seems to indicate that I should switch to short-term rentals, while I was always focussing on long-term. A completely different business model, so I’m now figuring out Airbnb and Booking, same in Italy (see my TinyTrullo, the beautiful TownHouse and the new cute Studio).
As always, I try to do things a little differently. Being visible, boasting beautiful design and good photos. Just like visibility for entrepreneurs. For example, I made a QR code on a ceramic sign at the door of the Townhouse, so that a passer-by can take a virtual tour… (Did you know, by the way, that you can easily create free QR codes with bit.ly?)
So if you, or someone you know, are temporarily looking for a luxury apartment in the heart of Amsterdam, or want to spend some time in Puglia, let me know!
