All short-term rental markets center around Airbnb. And at the center of Airbnb is Florida, the 2019 hot spot for short-term rentals in 2019.

Florida is home to seven cities with the most per capita rentals through Airbnb, according to a study from IPX1031, a 1031 exchange resource. IPX1031 analyzed 350 cities to find the most Airbnb properties from the growth of short-term rentals in their communities named AirDNN.

The cities with the most growth uptick in the number of rental listings through Airbnb since 2017 included:

– Charlotte NC            +54.7%

– Fresno CA                +54.4%

– Jacksonville FL        +54%

The cities with the most limited growth uptick in the number of rental listings through Airbnb included Chicago, Austin, Boston and Los Angeles. Washington DC has actually seen a decrease in the growth uptick of Airbnb rental listings.

The IPX1031 Insight blog reported, “Some of these (limited growth and decreasing number of Airbnb short-term rentals) cities have been dealing with tighter regulations and restrictions on Airbnbs, which may be the reason for these stagnated numbers.”
