This city has been one of the global leaders in embracing the sharing economy. Just in the past year, 130,000 people stayed in peer-to-peer lodging such as Airbnb in SF. As San Francisco is the founding place of the company, this is a very mature market with 49.1% of people having 10 or more reviews. The city is home from 5,074 listings, San Francisco’s highest Airbnb populated area is in zip code 94110 stretching from the Mission District to College Hill with 795 listings. The second most popular area is in Dolores Heights and surrounding areas under zip code 94114 with 430 listings. With rent and housing being expensive in this area there will always be demand for cheaper alternatives such as Airbnb. This is reflected in the weekly Revenue per available room, averaging around $1,300 from June to August, which is the highest for this category in the country. Because there is such high demand for housing and rentals in the area, these numbers will only drop around 30% in the winter.
While cities across the world are debating over regulations for the company, Airbnb and San Francisco have been able to work together and have been able to form a productive relationship. Airbnb and the San Francisco Travel Association formed a co-marketing partnership, marking the first agreement of its kind between the accommodations-listing service and a U.S. city’s travel bureau. In Addition Airbnb has been working with San Francisco on securing a set of regulations that allow residents to rent out their homes through Airbnb and similar services without worsening the city’s housing shortage.
