Airbnb Income Calculator: How Much Can You Make On Airbnb? [2022]

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? What kind of average occupancy rate can you expect? At what price will you offer your Airbnb listing for rent? 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 and which factors are most important by looking at the data. We’ve compiled Airbnb revenue statistics across the world to see what the average host makes on Airbnb.

How Much Can You Earn 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.

If you want an estimate specifically for your property, give the tool at the top of the page a try – it’ll tell you have much you should expect to make in your market based on some of your property’s key parameters. Being armed with a data-driven expectation of what your property could earn comes in handy when evaluating a potential investment or when talking to prospective vacation rental property managers.
