Blog Article: The Airbnb Experiment: 42 Guests, 1 Police Visit, and $19,000


#1

Just came across this blog about whether someone should do a long term lease vs. AirBnb. The results might not be what you think!

Has anyone done similar calculations before? Do they end up making less than they think?

We’ve done something similar for folks who have asked for it, Tom. Typically in areas where hotel rates are much higher relative to long-term lease rates (like Atlanta), the return is much higher. In places like San Francisco where long-term lease rates is incredibly high, it’s less of a no-brainer.

Beyond Pricing (www.beyondpricing.com) helps optimize those rates by 10-40%.
