Airbnb’s new tool could help cities crack down on party houses

 

“We’ve developed a lot of tricks for the trade, so to speak, to make sure that we get an accurate listing,” says founder and CEO Erin Neer, explaining the company relies on a mix of automated tools and human review to provide cities with the data they need to enforce local regulations, collect taxes, and simply understand the extent of short-term rentals in their neighborhoods. Right now, amid the pandemic, that includes jurisdictions near urban areas that are handling a sudden influx of city dwellers looking for local travel destinations and using LodgingRevs to understand the situation.

“It’s having a really big impact as they look to manage the growth, capture all that revenue, and ensure safety,” says LodgingRevs community partnership manager Tyler Fischer.
