Why Analyzing Performance is Key in 2023 for Airbnb Hosts and Hospitality Professionals: Comparing to the Market and Last Year

Traditional vacation rental markets saw an incredible surge in 2021 and 2022, but 2023 differs. Sea, mountain, and rural locations still thrive, but travelers are more price sensitive. Lake Tahoe's winter tourism declined (-9%), but a slight increase (+6%) is expected for July 14-15. Wisconsin Dells' bookings have remained stable, pacing ahead of 2022 (+7.5%). Cities are experiencing a resurgence in demand with varying recovery rates; Bordeaux, France, is an example, with a decline from January to March (-2.5%), followed by a surge on September 9 (+28%), potentially due to a Rugby World Cup match.

Cities are experiencing a resurgence in demand, but the pace of recovery varies greatly between markets and seasons. For instance, in 2023, most European cities are surpassing their 2022 levels, with Bordeaux, France being a notable example. Although Bordeaux's market experiences a decline from January to March (-2.5%), it picks up momentum throughout the year (+3%). It sees a surge on September 9 (+28%), potentially due to a Rugby World Cup match. 

In response to these shifts, hoteliers and short-term rental managers need comparative data to reduce uncertainty for their urban and non-urban short-term rental businesses.

Fortunately, PriceLabs provides a solution through its pacing and historical comparison features, allowing hospitality and hotel managers to measure their success against the local market and track changes in key performance metrics compared to their previous performance.

Analyzing and Optimizing Listing Performance with PriceLabs' Pacing Tools

Hospitality pros can take their revenue management strategy to the next level with Pacing – a feature now available within each of PriceLabs' dynamic pricing and market report products.

Hosts and managers can now easily identify whether their listings, local competitors, or an entire market are slowing down or accelerating compared to last year. In addition, they can keep track of rates, occupancy, and reservations on forthcoming dates straight from each of PriceLabs’ industry-leading tools, Market Dashboards, Portfolio Analytics, and Neighborhood Data – all at no added cost for current users.
