It's completely free to create a listing on Roomster. Click the "post new listing" button on the "I’m offering a room" section of the 'edit listings page.' This will take you to a form where you can enter initial details. You can always change any of these details later. Your listing won't go live until you're completely ready, so go ahead and click 'save changes' to keep entering information.
It’s up to you to decide how much you charge. To get an idea of what you can charge, we recommend searching for similar listings in your neighborhood to learn more about local pricing. You can set different prices for nightly, weekly, and monthly stays. To do this, click 'Your Listings.'
A great title and description of your place are essential. They serve as an advertisement for your space! Make sure your title is descriptive and clearly written. Stay concise with your title- people will lose interest after 10 words or so. Misspellings and grammatical errors are also turn-offs. Descriptions, on the other hand, should be very detailed. They should give your prospective guests a great sense of what to expect.
Use this section to lay out expectations for guests. Do you allow visitors? This is the place to spell out guidelines so that your guests can understand what is expected of them before booking.
Great photographs are the best way for prospective guests to discover your listing. Roomster lets you upload many photographs of your space. The more photographs, the better: photographs are crucial for guests in deciding whether they want to live with you. Make sure your photographs are well lit, in focus, and representative of your space. As a reminder, any pictures other than the place you're listing will be deleted.
Your profile is the place where guests get to know you. Upload a picture of yourself (preferably clear, smiling headshots) that shows off your personality. It's great to include other co-hosts, but stay away from photographs that may be confusing or intimidating. We suggest not using pictures of pets, random events, and drawings. Fill out a detailed profile about yourself, including your philosophy towards hosting, so that guests learn more about you.
