What to buy to set up your AirBnB: a shopping list to stock your new listing

What to buy to set up your AirBnB: a shopping list to stock your new listing

Here is our Master List we use when setting up and maintaining our AirBnB listings. When we get a new property, our goal is to have it rent ready within 48 hours of acquiring the property. One time we even had it ready within 24 hours of acquiring!

In order to do that, we have to be ready with EVERYthing! You don’t want to make a dozen trips back and forth to your local target, Walmart, or home goods. You want it ready so your crew can get you in and set so you can start making income on your property. Using a master comprehensive list is important to make sure you have everything loaded and ready to unpack before you even get the keys. Other than furniture, shopping should take you 15 minutes, not 15 hours!

The goal of hosting an AirBnB is to give your guests a place to call home. We want it clean and comfortable. We want in inviting and enticing. Each item you buy for the home, think is this necessary to my AirBnB to help my guests enjoy their stay. Then throw in a few upgrades. For example they don’t really NEED shampoos and lotion. We aren’t a hotel. But for a couple of cents per guest, is adds that extra welcoming touch.

It helps streamline the process to just come here and click on all the things we need to add to our cart each time we set up a new listing or need to refill our inventory. As a reminder, there are affiliate links in this post.
