Visibility and controls

You can see who and when someone is hosting within your buildings. As a building owner, you can set community rules, such as quiet hours, for all Airbnb guests to follow.

Ancillary revenue and affordability

You can elect to earn a share of revenue on every booking. Your residents can also earn extra money on their rental apartment which can help with the rising cost of living.

Long-term resident demand

Increase net new demand by making your properties discoverable on Airbnb. Prospective residents can browse 400+ long term unfurnished rentals across 125+ cities where they can live and host.
