The digital nomad trend is going mainstream. From globetrotting single thirty-somethings to a family of four interested in a one or three-month rental, remote working offers options to millions of people.
It’s also an opportunity for short-term rentals to expand their guest profile. By making a few improvements in their short-term rental amenities, offering flexibility, and highlighting the business-grade amenities with professional photography, property managers can attract more digital nomads for longer stays.
Digital nomadism is set to be a huge shift in the short-term rental industry and one that all managers and platforms should take note of.
Flexibility in bookings and lengths of stay will be key to attracting these guests.
Spaces tailored for working with business-ready amenities should be considered, created, and shown off for each property.
Providing deeper information about the rental property and its amenities can set properties apart from their competitors.
Treat guests as if they were locals and not tourists if they are coming for an extended stay.
The sky's the limit for digital nomads, don't discount properties off the beaten track or outside cities as long as there is good Wi-Fi.
