Today marks the official launch of Houst in Edinburgh. Whilst we may have been working away behind the scenes since early February – sorting the logistics, finding cleaners, linen companies and handy men, today is the day we cut the red ribbon and officially open the Edinburgh Houst doors to all! We admit we do have a small head start (we managed to bring 20 hosts and their homes on board prior to our official launch!) and such is the enthusiasm from the local residents we expect Edinburgh to be an incredibly successful city and one instrumental to our growth.
So why choose Edinburgh you ask?Edinburgh seemed like the perfect City for us to continue our rapid growth. It is a vibrant hub for tourists to the UK, it has world class Universities and it has fantastically successful year round events which draw large numbers to the City. The Edinburgh fringe festival in the summer months is the perfect example, where the City literally overfills with people and Edinburgh comes together as one to celebrate.There is so much going on in Edinburgh and with over 1.5 million overnight tourist visits in 2015 alone, and at number two in the “most visited tourist cities in the UK”, it was the clear choice of where to go next for Houst!Our official launch starts with a mail-drop campaign which will see 11,500 leaflets posted by the Royal Mail to the residents of central Edinburgh, educating them about host management and its benefits as well as offering a special launch discount too! Whats more if you tweet a picture of the leaflet with yourself to @Houst we will double our launch offer!We are really excited to be launching- and you, the residents of Edinburgh, now have the perfect opportunity to join the sharing revolution and open the doors to your home whilst you are away.But we aren’t stopping here! Houst have big plans and want to help spread the sharing economy further and wider, whilst helping remove the hassle. We will be launching in new cities in the coming months, so keep an eye out as we may be coming to you soon!If you'd like to unlock the value in your home, try our clever calculator below and see how much your home could earn you!
