Renting Properties

1.  Buy or rent some land.

2.  Buy or make a large house for your B&B.

3.  Get a rental box system.  I use Hippo Rent, but there are several perfectly fine systems. For a Bed and Breakfast, if you're going to offer shorter than one day rentals, be sure your system supports rentals by the hour.  (A search of the Marketplace for "hourly rental" turned up several possibilitites)

4.  Following the instructions for the rental box system you purchase, create a rental box for each of your rental rooms.

5.  Advertise, advertise.  Put a link to your business in your Profile, in your forum signature. Put an ad in the Classifieds.  Contact popular bloggers and let them know of your new and, we hope, attractive location.  Hold some events on your land...a dance, a hunt, a contest.  Anything to attract people.

One possible difficulty with a short term rental property:  normally, rental land is set to allow only group members to rez objects.  If you want your guests to be able to rez things, you may have to set up an automatic group inviter, or have live help available to send group invites in a timely manner.  Or you can set the land to public rezzing.  In this case, you will need to patrol frequently to keep the land free of litter.  Or, you can disallow public rezzing, and simply make sure that everything people need is already in place.
