Huge Demand From Nomadic Workers

Huge Demand From Nomadic Workers

Remote work has been one of the rare benefits of the pandemic, and now nomadic workers are extending their stays for weeks, sometimes months at a time. According to Airbnb, the company saw an increase of 16% in stays over 28 days or longer (February/March 2022) compared to the same period in 2019.

A staggering statistic shows that one in every five nights booked on the Airbnb platform during Q3 was for a stay of 28 nights or longer.

This scenario helped Airbnb make over 55 million dollars in profit last quarter, suggesting the travel industry is finally bouncing back after two years of upheaval.

Become A New Airbnb Host

Airbnb has put together an excellent marketing effort to entice new hosts to sign up. Their sign-up page estimates your projected monthly earning potential based on booking data for the last 12 months from your specific area.

While this estimated income amount is just that, an estimation, it provides a baseline or starting point for those looking to start a side hustle as an Airbnb host.

For areas with specific laws to prevent nightly rentals, hosts can capitalize on the popularity of working remotely and skirt those laws by renting for a minimum of 30 days.
