I have a local flat that is vacant on Monday. It's the one I renovated earlier this year and the short term tenants are moving on. I had no takers for it as a permanent rental via an agent at $420pw, so I thought I might Airbnb it, but put it on for a minimum stay of 30 nights. Looking on Airbnb yesterday when I did a search of flats available for 30 days from October 1 at under $3,000pw, only 13 showed up - and some of them were a fair way out of town. I put it on Airbnb and Gumtree. The Gumtree listing was $495 per week and I got a hit in a couple of hours. He's having a look on Saturday and I suspect he will take it. The Airbnb listing worked out at $580 per week and I got a hit on that overnight. Pity I sort of said the Gumtree bloke got in first. Decent priced furnished accommodation is very hard to find in Sydney. Just as well I have a lot of spare furniture.
