Miami Beach Has More Airbnb Listings Per Capita Than Any Other U.S. City, By Far

There are 3,416 Airbnb listings in Miami Beach for every 50,000 residents – by far the highest of any city in America, according to a new study.

The cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale also rank in the top 10, with 1,033 and 1,015 Airbnb listings per 50,000 residents, respectively.

More than 350 cities were studied by IPX1031 using Airbnb data for the ranking.

Airbnb is beginning to cater to those looking for Airbnb investment properties in Miami The company has partnered with the developer of Miami’s upcoming 604-unit Natiivo tower which is advertised as being designed for and “powered by” Airbnb. A second tower is planned in Edgewater.

Listings for Airbnb have actually declined in some cities including San Francisco, New York and Washington D.C since 2017, IPX1031 said. Increased government regulation is blamed.

Where in Miami Beach? It’s illegal almost everywhere, or at least the most sought after parts of it. Just do a quick search on Airbnb and you’ll see very few options available there.

I own two units that I rent on Airbnb in Brickell/Downtown and it’s not what it used to be. The word spread that it was a good business, too many people started doing it and now the nightly prices are so low it almost doesn’t make sense anymore. Projects like Nativo will flood the market with so many new units that Airbnb won’t make sense anymore for most owners. At this point I’m considering putting my two units back in long term leases since I’d make almost the same for 10x less work. Long term rents are kind of stable for now in Miami but short term rentals are getting crushed with all the new competition.

You’re making too much sense. Don’t tell that to the brokers who think AirBnB will revolutionize downtown Miami.

Makes sense.
Miami and Florida are tourists spots. 100+ million visitors to the state of Florida last year, and no one in Miami follows condo covenants.
Tourism made this state, and the start of the cold early this year should help Florida.

What are people staying in Miramar for? Is the antenna farm that much of an attraction?

I guess they like I75 merging into the Palmetto and driving by at 10MPH through Hialeah and Doral

I thought Miami Beach had a ban against renting your domicile to tourists.

They have very specific permitted zones for such activity. How many people flaunt the law is another question.

Depends on the zone your building is in.

I’m not sure what this proves other than Miami has a comparatively low population and a glut of underused real estate
