I did manage approximately 20 Airbnb properties in Melbourne. I currently manage my own 2 Airbnb properties. One in Melbourne and one in Bowen Queensland. There are currently 12 owners who have Airbnb's managed by a professional real estate agent. They are terribly unhappy with their service and would like me to be their host again or at least their co-host. They have been receiving bad reviews for cleanliness etc. which is affecting the bookings.
As I understand it at the moment, for me to take over these properties the current host (agency) will have to delete the property off Airbnb and then myself or the owner will need to set the property back up as a new property. This will mean all forward bookings will be cancelled. This is the major issue. Not only for the owner but the guest and Airbnb.
Is there anyway that an owner can change the listing to a new host, change the listing to themselves and me as co host without deleting the listing?
I'll look forward to hearing from you
