Rentalizer also factors in market-wide vacation rental metrics such as seasonality, rental demand, and revenue growth.

Airbnb Investment FAQs

Wondering how much you can make with an Airbnb, or if vacation rentals in your target market are profitable? Here are some answers to your most frequently asked questions.

We believe the best way to figure out how much you can make on Airbnb is by looking at what existing, nearby short-term rentals actually make every year. The Rentalizer Airbnb calculator lets you plug in relevant details—like the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and occupants—to see what nearby homes with that configuration make every year, plus their occupancy rates. Add in more details like estimated fees, insurance, utilities, and setup costs to get a projected Cap Rate percentage. Together, this gives you an accurate prediction of the annual revenue you can make with an Airbnb.

Have a specific property in mind? Plug the address into the Rentalizer Airbnb calculator, make sure the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and guests is correct, and adjust your operating and setup costs (if you know them) to see what that particular property could make if you list it full time. We base our projections on the real market performance of similar nearby listings to be as accurate as possible.

Investing in a vacation rental has many benefits—from additional income to having a vacation getaway for your family. But making the right investment is key if you expect it to be profitable. Before you go under contract, check the projected revenue potential of your dream property with a trusted Airbnb calculator.
