Overview

Airbnb is an American online marketplace company which provides accommodations and vacation rental services to people.  The company was founded in 2008 by Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk, with headquarters in San Francisco, California, United States. The original name of Airbnb is “Air Bed and Breakfast.” Airbnb maintains and hosts a marketplace accessible to its consumers via their website and app making it possible for its users to arrange lodging, tourism experiences and list their properties for rental.

Airbnb doesn’t own any real estate themselves. It is an online platform that connects hosts renting out space in their homes with guests that are looking for lodging that have generally cheaper prices than a hotel.  The company profits by taking 3% commission from bookings and 6-12% servicing fee from guests. 

Airbnb offers inexpensive prices, that’s why people around the world love to avail their services.  The company has also attracted a lot of investors to invest in this kind of business as it has  proven to be timeless throughout the years. This made Airbnb the largest online alternative accommodation travel agency in the world.

Why Invest in AirBnB Stocks with Iron Edge VC?

Airbnb Investors Reviews in Buying AirBnb Stocks.

Buying stocks to invest may be a challenging decision especially if you are going to choose where or to whom you will entrust your money to. Investors and analysts shared some points to help you decide why investing in Airbnb stocks is a good choice. 

Airbnb rental can pull in two to three times the revenue of a long-term rental.

Investing on Airbnb rentals is proven to be a great way to expand investors’ business and to increase profit opportunities.  Since renters are coming and going consistently, that means the owner will always know when maintenance problems come about. This will allow the owner to be on top of issues as soon as they arise. This saves them from bigger problems in the future and from spending more money.

Airbnb has a diversified portfolio of tenants.

Airbnb collects income from different tenants on a regular basis. Each tenant will be sharing a very small percentage of their total income. Taking this into account, if ever one of them cancels at the last minute, it won’t have much impact on their finances. Unlike in a traditional renting, when the tenant missed paying or suddenly vanished at night, their income takes an immediate hit that won’t be easily replaced. 

No wonder why Airbnb enticed more investors and led to having 4 million hosts who have embraced 800 million guest arrivals to about a hundred cities in almost every country and region across the globe. There’s no doubt that stock owners of Airbnb company are confident that their money is safe and will grow.

So if you are thinking of investing in Airbnb stocks, now is the time to do it. Grab the low price today or else it will get higher in the next few days. Feel free to contact Iron Edge VC to assist you in the investing process.
