Quick Take – (Full Episode – #74 – Link Below to Full Episode)

We’re super excited to welcome John Bianchi – The Airbnb Data Guy’ – to this episode! Hear how John approaches Airbnb rentals from an analytical and pure data standpoint. 

John shares his secrets on finding the Airbnb sweet spot by discovering highly profitable properties in any market (hint: it has a lot to do with the amenities that you offer at your properties).

As the Head of Data for Superhost Labs, an Airbnb investing fund, John understands the numbers behind successful short-term rental operations. His mission is to ensure that no hosts ever buy or rent unprofitable Airbnb properties again!

Years ago, John published a course about Airbnb data and how to use AirDNA to profitable properties.

The only problem was that John didn’t know how to sell the course.

So he posted it to YouTube for free, and amassed a ton of views!

People reached out to him, so John launched Point Analytics, his Airbnb data consulting company that offers Airbnb data reports identifying the most profitable Airbnbs in any market.

In this episode, we discussed:

– How John became The Airbnb Data Guy

– What are the “cheat codes” that John uses?

– Competitive advantages and disadvantages of the Airbnb algorithm

– Proven formulas for translating AirDNA data into profitable businesses

– How to use AirDNA to find the most profitable spots in a market

– How these strategies apply to purchases, co-hosting, and arbitrage models.

– Being strategic about finding homes that cashflow and appreciate

– What are some good amenities that have worked really well in some locations that Airbnb hosts should consider?

– Designing a home for a specific customer archetype.
