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.

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.

Transparency in data subscription plan how we work

How accurate is Airbtics?

We predicted Airbnb’s Gross Booking Value (GBV) prior to its IPO in December 2020 and provided this prediction to a few financial institutions in 2020. The correlation score between our prediction and Airbnb’s actual revenue was 97%.

With these findings, every short-term rental investor, host, property manager, and researcher can have peace of mind that the data they are accessing in the Airbtics dashboard is real and is one of the most accurate data in the short-term vacation rental industry.

How does Airbtics get data?

It’s important for you to understand how we get this data.

We take snapshots of Airbnb listings’ calendars at fixed intervals. Our system was deployed in 2015 and tracked 20% of listings. Since 2021, we’ve been tracking all the listings on Airbnb. The calendar shows which nights are still available and which are not available for reservation.

We have partnered with over 100 Airbnb hosts to continually improve our data model. We also received over 3 million actual reservation data every year from an undisclosed source which helps us to improve our data accuracy.

How can we tell if unavailable nights are booked by guests or blocked by hosts?

We have improved a classifier, considering 87 additional data points, such as booking pattern, last review, etc., to determine whether the unavailable nights are actual bookings.

Accuracy for hosts, investors, and vacation rental managers

The Airbnb performance data you are accessing in our app is updated every week. It is scheduled every Wednesday to ensure that the data you’re getting is always fresh and accurate. Indeed, a good value for your money.

“Great customer service. Professional team. Data is updated everyday. Occupancy rate and daily rate data are updated dynamically allowing me to explore 25 neighborhoods and communities in Orland with one subscription.” – Vincent Madden, Superhost @ Malibu, California

Accuracy for enterprises

For enterprises, our data is refreshed on a daily basis upon request. In short, our partners are gaining the most accurate and the most granular data that they need to grow their businesses.

“The simplicity of the user interface should not undermine how advanced the software is, the analytics and data sets are the most accurate in the industry. The team knows the market, and has the quickest customer service in the industry.” – Sterling Jones, Founder @ Cohostin.com

Accuracy for researchers and Airbtics’ custom data

When it comes to custom data, we are the best among our competitors. We believe every enterprise, researcher, and property manager has different data needs to grow their business and do their research project.

Apparently, even our app is customizable with our tailored region and dynamic data. So, if you need custom data, contact us to get the best in the industry at a favorable price.

“I had a customized request for data for a research project. I appreciated the personal support from Airbtics very much and received a solution which I am 100% satisfied with for a very favorable price. I would absolutely recommend it.” – Selina Steiner, Hospitality Research @ FH Graubünden University 

Airbtics vs other competitors

We are frustrated with the current industry data standard. There is a lack of transparency. Most short-term rental data buyers are using commercial data for the first time, so they are not sure how to interpret the data with caveats.

Make data more transparent

We don’t just show the median occupancy rate per bedroom. We show how the data is distributed. In the example, the median occupancy of 2 bedrooms is 68%, but it also shows how many listings are falling under 90-100%, 70-80%, and so on. Those listings with 90-100% might be fully booked due to mid-term bookings, and you can see that from our dashboard

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.

According to recent Airbnb statistics, Airbnb has

  • over 7 million active listings in over 220 countries
  • over 4 million active Airbnb hosts on the Airbnb platform
  • generated $8.4 Billion in revenue in 2022, with a net income of $1.9B
  • 394 million bookings were made

  • 5.9 million Airbnb hosts both active and inactive; 240,000 of them are VRMs

1. Calendar pattern;
2. Whether a review was generated close to the month or not; and
