I didn't expect to see Barcelona & Prague in the top two spots. I could of swore it was New York!

Interesting. Barcelona's position connected to their recent hosting of Olympics? Have similar data for USA cities?

Thanks for sharing, @jpol.

As number 1 on the list, it's no wonder Barcelona has hit back with big ($635,000) fines for Airbnb and HomeAway, then. The huge increase of short term rentals are pushing up prices for residents.

As a Barcelona resident myself, I'm very interested to see what happens next!

Should I fall for this ? - do the figures work ? - are they skewed ? - why might I ask ?

is it because

  • "monthly rent" value does not include utilities and housekeeping costs ?
  • "revenue" is gross not net of expenses ?

  • who owns forbes.com ?

"Airdna analyses pricing, occupancy & income generated from over 4 million properties on Airbnb, and can identify prime vacation rental real-estate and predict smart investment opportunities."

  • mmm ... can they analyse housekeeping costs and utilities?
