It’s a little trick that makes a big difference: Use headings and bullets throughout your Airbnb listing.
Benefits of Using Headings and Bullet Points:
- Standing out from the crowd
- Breaking information down into its component parts
- Encouraging your audience to read until the end
- Looking professional and credible
- Highlighting all key points and facts

Without Headings and Bullets
The apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. 2 of the bedrooms are bigger than the 3rd bedroom. 2 of the bedrooms have a queen-size bed, and 1 of the bedrooms has a king-size bed. 1 of the bedrooms has an ensuite attached to it – very useful! Each o the bathrooms have a toilet, shower and bathtub. The apartment also has air-conditioning and heating.
There’s a really big kitchen with pretty much everything you would want in a kitchen, like a microwave, oven and even a dishwasher.
In the building there is also a laundry room in the basement. The building also has a doorman, and an elevator which is neat!

Headings and bullet points help the brain digest information quickly, simply and without getting overwhelmed.
You need to remember that prospective guests are most likely looking at many other listings at the same time they’re looking at yours.
These guests simply won’t take the time to sit there and read through long, dense and heavy blocks of text.
The easier you make their job in understanding why your place is the best option, the greater the likelihood that prospective guests will request to book it.
