Are you one of the millions of women who lost or left their job during the pandemic and haven’t returned to the workplace? Are you a part of the ‘Great Resignation’ and want to become an entrepreneur? Are you looking to purchase a second home or a full-time rental property but haven’t decided on a location?
Well, Airbnb released a report that outlines exactly when and where becoming a host makes people the most money. With demand for home-like vacation accommodations rising, 2021 brought 6,000 new property hosts who had their first-ever Airbnb booking last year.
It’s not just the veteran hosts who are making money. New U.S. Airbnb listings garnered $1.8 billion in rentals last year, up 34 percent from two years ago. New female hosts earned most of that money, making $1 billion in that same 12-month time period. Additionally, women receive a higher share of 5-star reviews and make up a majority of all Airbnb hosts both in the U.S and worldwide.
