Airbnb Had $56 Million Impact On San Francisco: StudyAirbnb, the Y Combinator company that enables people to rent out their homes to travelers, has released a new study that shows its effect on San Francisco. It also shows the growing impact and large potential of collaborative consumption companies, which are redefining the meaning of economic activity in a highly Internet-connected population where sharing and renting among peers in some cases replaces ownership and buying.
The study commissioned by Airbnb shows that $56 million in total was spent by Airbnb travelers over the course of a year in San Francisco. That includes $12.7 million spent on renting that went to Airbnb hosts (not including the approximately 3% fee that Airbnb gets), plus $43.1 million spent on San francisco businesses. That includes $11.8 million on food and beverage, $10.8 million on retail, $9.8 million on services, $5.7 million on entertainment and $4.0 million on transportation. Read More
