I built a standard Airbnb revenue model in excel for a property and it showed a decent monthly income based only on 30% occupancy rate for a place that has an average of 42%. I can take on about half of that as risk in case I don’t make it based on my income. I’m still nervous. Given this very little information… would you invest?

You’re missing some key figures. What’s the cash out and cash on cash return ?

Are you buying it turn key, ready to go? Or are you going to be furnishing and stocking it? Start up costs for STR’s are substantial, and it will take several months to establish your listing with reviews and traction. Anyone who thinks they’re done when they close the deal doesn’t understand how much more work a STR is over a LTR.

Dont use 2020 or 2021 numbers. Pandemic numbers are totally skewed higher

At what pt in the transaction is the furniture for a home sold/moved? Had a buyer walk the day before closing so a bit paranoid about this time around. With the last buyer, they were going inherit the furniture so this wasn’t an issue, but the new buyer does not want it so trying to have them allow me to sell it (for 2-3 days) after closing day so I’m not shit out of luck. The property is an airbnb, so if i sell everything and this new buyer walks, I’m screwed as i’ll have to pay $3400 a month.

From a financial standpoint in this market, which would be a better approach in Austin -

1. Buy a ~8-850k house that meets most of our ideal criteria (size, schools, interiors etc) to stay long term

2. Buy a ~5-550k house that’s not ideal with the plan of moving into an ideal home in 4-5 years when kid is ready for school.
