Get the data you need to understand the true scale and scope of your community's short-term vacation rental industry 

Good policy making requires good data, and Host Compliance has more data on the short-term vacation rental industry in your specific jurisdiction than anyone. Host Compliance’s proprietary data can provide deep insights into the scale and scope of the short-term rental activity in any jurisdiction and its different areas, neighborhoods and blocks. Data is collected weekly and we collect, aggregate and de-duplicate all listing data, reviews, calendar info and photos across the 54 top short-term rental listing sites. We estimate this represents 99% of the total vacation rental universe in most jurisdictions.

Host Compliance's data can be segmented and analyzed along any imaginable parameter to get the answers you need to formulate fair and effective short-term regulations for your community. Equally important, the ability to tee-up the short-term rental debate based on facts can often be the difference between a healthy data-informed public discourse and a less productive and drawn-out public process that leads to unnecessary controversy, neighborhood tension and decision-making based on hearsay, fear and anecdotal evidence.

For a city trying to paint a picture of the degree of short-term rental activity within its jurisdiction, Host Compliance’s Short-term Rental Market Overview Reports are invaluable. There’s simply is no cost effective way to replicate the results.
