  1. Very comprehensive guide and well written article bro. Thanks for sharing!

    Am i correct to assume that this started of as a “push“ from job layoff (your other article in reallife?)

    Just wondering before you start this vacation rental Business did you tried other business or this is the first jump on a business?

    And also wondering assuming you had a well paid income as a salaryman in an oil&gas industry (lets say rm15-20k/mth Gross), how long does it take For this rental business to reach that amount?

    Also i assume revenue and profit that you will get will be more since you have more 10 rental property? Mine to share how much x times against high-paid salary earner?

    From the way that you wrote this article, i can feel you are very passionate about it, so i am thinking by sharing your recipe/tips to setup the airbnb business, would you think that will bring in more competition into this rental vacation business?

  2. Hi Helmi,

    Thanks for your detailed post, I really enjoy reading this.

    If I may ask, what kind of remuneration that you will pay your staff? Are they part-time worker for you as well? Is it possible to share this part as well? 🙂

    I learnt a lot from this, will click your referral link in the future for my airbnb.

      For rates, this will depend on the location and what they do. To find out what people are charging for similar staff in your area, simply ask your neighbors or property agents. They would probably have staff doing the same thing as well. Ask a few then average them out. From there, you can make an informed decision on how much to pay. You don’t want to pay too little, and you don’t want to pay too much either. You gotta target right in the middle.

      Hope this helps.

  4. Hi Helmi,

    How do we register with authorities & obtain proper licensing to start up a Short Term Rental company? Your answer will be valuable for most of the followers here. Thanks.

    1. You should check with your local city council. For Malaysia, I’ve checked with the local city hall, and there is no such license.
