Airbnb Research on Boston, Massachusetts

This vibrant, thriving city is renowned for its cultural facilities, world-class educational institutions, champion sports franchises, as well as its place at the very forefront of American history. A total of 16,250,000 international and domestic visitors made their way to the Boston region in 2014.

Boston benefits from a relatively balanced tourism market mix between commercial, group, and leisure room night demand. In this city with 1160 listings, the most popular area for Airbnb’s is in the Back Bay area with 201 listings (zip code 02116). This city is also one of the more seasonal travel destinations in the United States. Starting in June up through October, the revenue per available room tends to average around $1000 per week. Then, in late November until May these numbers can drop by as much as 55%. Boston is also an Airbnb market that has seen a lot of success; where over 50% of the hosts there have multiple properties. The reason for this possibly being that according to the Boston Business Journal, “It’s 38 percent cheaper to stay in a Boston-area vacation rental home such as Airbnb than to stay in a hotel”.  The Average length of stay for the domestic visitors to Boston is 3.2 nights, and the total amount spent for leisure visitors was $572 per night. Approximately 40% of the money spent by these visitors' is for accommodations and 60% is for dining, entertainment, shopping and sightseeing. With Tourism as one of the largest industries in the North East, and Boston being one of the most popular destinations, listing a property or room in this area through Airbnb can be very profitable.

There is not yet any specific legislation in place to regulate Airbnb listings in the Boston area. Private rooms and homes booked through Airbnb or its competitor sites, such as VRBO, are not subject to state licensing regulations, such as annual health and safety inspections, or room tax collections. The tax applies only to establishments with three or more rooms. But, according to the Boston Globe, “the bill pending before the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Revenue would require all short-stay rentals to register with the state Department of Housing and Community Development, and to collect the state’s 5.7 percent rooms tax”.
