Entrepreneur Kayla Mason is going viral on TikTok
after sharing how she found a $38,000 house on Craigslist
and transformed it into a “fully functioning Airbnb”.
She became the owner of
an Airbnb “completely by chance”.
“I decided to do a search on Craigslist one day just to check.
I found [a listing] that was for sale by owner. I ended up
purchasing the place without even seeing it myself!”.
she spent several months — from Nov. 2019
to June 2020 — fixing up her $38,000 house.
With a little paint here and some throw
pillows there, she turned the getaway
into a Scandinavian-style oasis.
Mason says she spent around $10,000 on
renovations, bringing her total investment
on her Ozarks abode to just under $50,000.
For people who are thinking about investing in a
vacation home/Airbnb, Mason’s advice is to listen
to your gut instincts and always do your research .
“Keep dreaming and putting
those thoughts out there”
