When it comes to data, accuracy is everything.
In Airbnb and the vacation rental business, accessing short-term rental data tools to lower the investment risk is now made possible.
There are a handful of companies that provide free and paid Airbnb data to investors, hosts, property managers, and even local agencies.
As a data consumer, how do you know that you are accessing real and accurate data?
How can you make sure you are paying for the real and right data to make a bigger return on your investments? Or are you just lured by the company’s marketing campaign, cool user experience design, and appealing press release?
Don’t let yourself be fooled. Look closely.
When it comes to Airbtics, transparency is what we practice.
Introducing Airbtics by the numbers
Since 2019, our team at Airbtics has been working to scrape, collect, and process a large amount of data from the largest short-term rental platforms such as Airbnb, VRBO, and booking.com.
Airbtics’ primary data source is attained through web scraping software that directly takes data points from Airbnb. We visit each of Airbnb listings on a daily to weekly frequency to see how the booking activities are changing. We also source data from various sources including some data from our partners.
We are proud of the gigantic amount of data we process, and so we want to share it with every investor, host, property manager, and researcher who has been using our data and those who will use it in the future.
