Make $10,000 from owning a tipi
So we were starting this whole North Carolina Tiny House building company and we had a friend named Brett who lives in a tipi and does awesome tipi workshops. We got to talking, and started looking and had a “what the heck” moment, when we realized how good the numbers are on tipis.
Specifically, using a tipi for Airbnb rental income.
Spend an afternoon learning how to build your own tipi for fun and profit! Follow the event link for more details.
As you know, Airbnb and other rental networks are destroying hotel chains, and allow homeowners and farmers to make income from their space.
This has been great for people with extra rooms, or if their super lucky, a mother-in-law cottage ready to rent out. Because ideally the guests coming and going aren’t in your actual house, taking up your living space.
Long story short, a tipi allows you to add space without building a building or pulling permits. It counts as a tent. Which means you can tap into the Airbnb market quickly and legally.
If you look at Airbnb you can see a lot of tipis being rented already. There is even a category for tipis when you’re searching, because they’re a popular choice. And they’re renting for as much as rooms in houses, because the “cool” factor makes up for the “walls” factor in most people’s heads. Especially if they’re just staying in one for a night or two.
What we're getting around to is tipis are great. We're talking like 300% ROI within the first three years if you rent them for $50 a night.
Which translates into “If you rent a tipi just 261 times on AirBnB, you’ll have made $10,000, net.’
Don't believe? Boom, graph.
This is based on a few assumptions, but it is sound reasoning. It’s how I’m going to do it at least:
