A tonne of interesting points covered in the article! The one thing that stuck out for me was your discussion of pricing, which for me has repeatedly come up as the number one most difficult issue to deal with when managing short-term rental properties.

I've spent a lot of time researching this pricing challenge and how best to deal with it, and would love for you guys to check out this article and let me know what you think! Are these experiences similar to yours? How have you managed to resolve them?

Its a good article. Clear damage issues when resolved by a third party, which also highlights the superhost also markets directly using a rate manager.

Good advice points in the article - particularly re photos (the before and after)!
