Rob Abasolo co-hosts the BiggerPockets podcast and is the founder of a company called Robuilt. Rob and his wife moved to L.A. from Kansas City in 2017 for a job opportunity. They wound up renting out their old apartment through Airbnb for the duration of their lease. The money they received helped them pay the mortgage on their new house in California and Rob then decided to build a tiny home in his backyard. After seeing massive success renting it out, Rob went all in on tiny homes. He’s currently working on building a tiny house village and glamping treehouses in Tennessee.
As with all other real estate strategies, tiny homes and Airbnb have their pros and cons. Rob gives all the details as well as what it’s like having rentals in the Joshua Tree area. He also shares some tips on what makes a plot of land suitable for short term rental construction. Rob’s program, Host Camp, is a 12-month membership with live calls and group coaching. Check out the website below and his YouTube channel for more information.
