Does anyone here do Airbnb in Meridian, Idaho? What is your experience for occupancy rates and nightly rates throughout the year? We enjoy the culture and life in Boise/Meridian, and are considering airbnb as an option.
While I don't currently operate any, I am planning on it in the near future (West Boise though, so YMMV). I found a great site for analytics regarding Airbnbs/STRs called AirDNA.co It's got some info available for free, but the real value is their paid service. Might be worth checking out if you're planning on STR as a business model in the future, beyond just 1-2 units.
I moved your question to the Short Term Rental forum.
@Greg Fyfe Do you already have a rental property in Meridian, or do you plan on buying/renting a property in order to make it into Airbnb?
@Adam Fleck, thanks for the insight into AirDNA.co - definitely an awesome resource. I did get some analytics from AirDNA.co, but I was hoping to see if I could verify the info as listed on the website.
@Paul Sandhu, I am looking at buying a property and considering both rentals or Airbnb in Meridian
Hey @Greg Fyfe - I live in Boise and actively invest here. I have some colleagues that manage AirBnBs in town. Feel free to shoot me and PM and I'd be happy to help you in any way I can. Best of luck!
@Greg Fyfe We see some demand for short term furnished rentals (30-90 days) as people are looking for homes to purchase.
@Jonna Weber thanks you, good to know!
@Corby Goade I just PM'd you!
@Jonna Weber Kinda like me right now! :D
