We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with the non-profit organization ASTRHO!
Here’s what that means for you and how you can take advantage of it:
The Association for Short-Term Rental Homeowners (ASTRHO) is a not-for-profit professional network for any homeowners renting their stays for short-term purposes.
ASTRHO’s main purpose is to bring these renters together as a community to collaborate and learn together, giving them unique perks and benefits, like access to learning resources by experts on marketing and home repair.
Homeowners can also use ASTRHO to meet their legal obligations, improve their guests’ experience, and achieve financial success through multiple strategies.
Since ASTRHO is a non-profit organization, you can trust them to find truly unbiased content, where the main purpose is to help you learn and connect with others, not sell you things you don’t need or want.
Where does ASTRHO fit?
As you may already know, all kinds of hotels, resorts, and even vacation managers are supported by multiple different associations where they can learn and connect with each other.
ASTRHO is an association exclusively focused on short-term rental owners and people interested in becoming one to help them market their stays, connect them with people, and improve their strategies.
With ASTRHO, you can ensure your short-term rental homestays remain safe, legal, and successful.
Who is ASTRHO for?
ASTHRO is mainly for three kinds of people:
- STR homeowners who self-manage and are looking to increase their marketing strategies and find ways to improve their stays.
- Potential STR investors who are looking for legal advice, insurance options, and income analysis.
- STR homeowners who want to become property managers and are looking for legal requirements, payment terms, and even one-on-one with experienced property managers through a mentor-mentee program.
Anyone can access these benefits for only $10 per month, which goes to fund ASTRHO’s basic resources and to support the community.
What ASTRHO doesn’t do
ASTRHO is focused to service homeowners only, so it’s not for professional managers or organizations in the hospitality business.
It’s also not focused on long stays, so it’s not for anyone looking to rent their stay for six months or more.
Finally, ASTRHO doesn’t aim to antagonize or compete with any other organization. Instead, its main purpose is to give private short-term rental homeowners an association to learn and find a community.
Benefits of joining ASTRHO
ASTRHO provides a lot of value for those $10 a month. Here are a few:
ASTRHO can give you access to webinars and learning courses made by experts on the field. You can use them to learn how to take better photos, how to handle the legal side of things, how to better market your stay, and how to manage your investment and expenses, to name a few.
With these learning resources, you’ll be able to clear any doubts you may have about short-term vacation rental homeownership through educational articles, e-courses, guides, and checklists.
Access to a large community
With ASTRHO, you can also interact with a community of people like you, who have the same concerns and issues as you may have.
This can help you learn from the experts on your area on how to take advantage of local trends and customs to better market your local stay. Find groups that are interested in the same things as you, like LGBTQ or Regulatory Advocacy groups.
