Airbnb...what do I need

2 Replies

I am south NJ area. I found a house in Poconos mountain. Thought of buying it and renting. But as it's far from my primary residence (takes 90 minute drive). I thought if trying out Airbnb as weekly vacation rental.


1) do I need specific CCO or CO from township to place a house for Airbnb?

2) any formulas or calculation I need to keep in mind for Airbnb rentals?

3) Any specific contract forms?

Hi there, great idea. I'm actually looking at building out a few cabins for AirBNB myself.

1.) Really depends on the town your in, I would call up the building department and ask them a "hypothetical question"


3.) The AirBNB community forum has tons of conversations and templates about what hosts include in the terms of their rentals
