A crafty entrepreneur named 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.”
By day, Mason is the owner of a mindfulness brand called Breathe KC. In other words, her job has absolutely nothing to do with real estate or lodging management. She became the owner of an Airbnb “completely by chance.”
“Before a trip out [to the Ozarks] I checked Zillow and there happened to be an A-frame for sale that had been on the market for over 140 days and was a few streets away from our friends. We made a point to look at it and I put an offer on it two days later!” Mason told In The Know.
Unfortunately, other people were also interested in the same house — and so ultimately, Mason’s offer didn’t end up getting accepted.
