How Much Can You Make With Airbnb?

Whether you’re thinking of putting your vacation home on Airbnb, have been hosting guests for a while, or are even thinking about investing in a vacation rental property, the biggest question for most is simply, “How much money can I make?”

The answer to that question depends on a lot of variables. What’s your property like? Where is it? How many guests can it host? How much will you be using the property yourself? The answer to these questions and many others will be the main determinant of how much you’ll make from your property.

However, you can still get a good idea of what is possible by looking at data. Here at AllTheRooms Analytics, we’ve compiled data for a number of cities across the world to see what the average host makes on Airbnb.

How Much Can You Make As A Host On Airbnb?

The easiest way to try and work out how much you can make as a host on Airbnb is by looking at the market average gross revenues. To calculate this we take all the money made by hosts and the total number of listings in a market and divide the former by the latter.

This gives you a quick feel for how much the average host is making on Airbnb. However, the issue with this approach is that it includes every type of vacation rental, from massive penthouses down to more humble studio apartments.
