Investing in Airbnb is a new business model that attracts multiple investors from all over the world, since there is a high demand for tourists looking for accommodation every minute. According to Airbnb, apartments and houses are the types of properties most sought after by travelers, as they provide space for both families and couples. In addition, most of these are located in condominiums that offer amenities such as swimming pools, gyms, terraces, and other social spaces that the users can take advantage of.

Is it advisable to invest in Airbnb?

For some years, lodging applications have stood in the way of hotels due to their price flexibility. Airbnb allows owners of houses and apartments to rent their properties for a relatively low cost, because they do not have the economic obligations of the hotel sector.

Likewise, at an operational level, it is easier for Airbnb to recover and offer the hosting service. It is enough to upload the offer to the app again and be able to respond to the demand of the sector. The better the option that you as an owner offer, the better your profits will be.

This is why it is definitely an excellent investment! The real estate market had a significant rebound in recent months due to the digitization of services and therefore the applications are very powerful channels for attracting customers.

Tips for investing in a property for Airbnb

Capital gain

Depending on the area where the apartment is located, there are many factors that affect the increase in capital gains such as shopping centers, easy access, transportation and security. This is very important when considering renting the property.


Some condominiums offer gyms, swimming pools, recreation areas, pet-walking areas, nearby parks and more.

Evaluate the market

There are areas with higher profitability, places where tourists usually rent and other data that will allow you to make an intelligent decision. In Costa Rica, for example, renting in Guanacaste is not the same as in Cartago.

Access and connectivity

Is it easy to get to or from where the property is located? What places does it connect to? Will the tenants you want to attract like it?
