Hi. We have a lovely old home in the midwest WA that is currently empty and in need of repair.

We are looking to either complete repairs ourselves, or have help doing the repairs, with a view to then using the home as an AirBNB rental.

Ideally we would like to invite an individual or a couple who have handyperson skills to live rent free for anywhere between 2-12 months, to slowly repair the property and get it rental-ready. We live a few hours away from the property; so the helpers would be essentially independent and on their own. We would likely cover some repair expenses and internet/electrical/water etc, some furniture, but food would be up to you. Details will be negotiated.

We would then envisage having someone stay on rent-free in one room, and maintaining the house while renting out other rooms on AirBNB. In addition to living rent-free, a portion of all revenue from the AirBNB would also be allocated to the live-in caretaker.

This would suit an individual/couple with some survival skills to begin with, as well as handy skills to do work such as - painting, tiling, cleaning, sourcing furniture, organising tradespeople etc.

We are still in the process of deciding which way we will go - to complete repairs ourselves and then source a live-in manager, or get people in to live free while doing repairs. A lot will depend on the interest we get from people!

If you're interested in this opportunity, please email us with a little backstory about yourself/ves and a resume if you have one.
