How much money is your flat making for you?

So, after last week’s post you’ve decided it’s time you joined all the other Flat-Clubbers and became a rentrepreneur too. After all, the news might think it’s all doom and gloom, but us rentrepreneurs see the current financial situation as an opportunity to make the most out of what we’ve got. And we’ve got a flat sitting empty when we go on holiday in a few months’ time.
So… how much can you realistically earn renting out your flat or spare room through Flat-Club?
Well, we’ve done the maths. Drum roll please...

$1500 per holiday!

Yes, that’s right. Every time you go on holiday and rent out your flat while you’re away, you could potentially earn $1500. But now that we know that, it means that if we don’t post our flat on Flat-Club, we are actually losing $1500 every time we leave our place empty. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can think of a lot of things I could do with that money.

So where did we get this sizeable figure of $1500?
Well, according to our data that’s how much, on average, you can make each time you rent out your flat whilst you’re away based on the average price paid per night and the average length of booking.
It’s the easiest $1500 you’ll ever make. $1500 made from travelling to exotic places and not leaving your flat at home sitting empty. Travelling the Flat-Club way makes it so much easier to justify having that extra cocktail on the beach…

So what are you waiting for? Post your flat for Spring Break online now!
