@Mojgan10 there is a slow in bookings this month. But you may consider the following that may possibly help increase your occupancy.

 

-Ensure your listing has high-quality, well-lit photos showcasing the best features of your space. Consider hiring a professional photographer if possible. Keep your listing information up-to-date, including any improvements or changes to your space.

-Small gestures like a welcome note or a guide to local attractions can greatly enhance guest satisfaction.

-Politely ask your guests to leave a review after their stay. Positive reviews can significantly boost your listing's attractiveness.

-Consider offering discounted rates for longer stays or last-minute bookings to attract guests. Hope this helps!

@Mojgan10 Go back to your regular price and instead do a discount promotion the week before to get last minute bookings. Example, I live in my house Wed and thur nights, I prefer to book fri/sat/sun/mon/tues nights. If I’m Not booked for the upcoming weekend, I do a 20% promotion. This puts a slash thru the price and puts my listing at the top of the search. And almost always get booked. Repeat this every weekend you aren’t booked.

@Mojgan10 I have no idea if $80 is high or low. You need to do a search for properties in your area and see how you compare to others. Also is the price what the guest pays or do they get Airbnb service fees loaded on top - Again make sure you are comparing what the guest pays when looking at other places.

My other advice is to not go too low. January for us is always our disastrous money losing month. There is just little business out there and costs for heating etc are high. As such a low price will just lose you more money when a guest does pop up. Perhaps your March is our January!
