Florida Hosts made $810 million in 2016, what did you make?

Vacation is changing. Travel is changing. Short term rentals are here to stay.

A recent article from the Miami Herald highlights the most recent updates from the revenue numbers of 2016 for the state of Florida.

As a native Floridian I can confidently say that with the ocean surrounding, the largest theme park epicenter in the world, and one of the major port capitals for cruise ships in the United States, Florida has quite a bit to offer.

But that’s coupled with the fact that on the regulatory side, short term rentals have support. Senator Rick Scott publicically, on several occasions, took time to thank the short term rental industry for disaster relief and helping the state manage displaced families.

Here are the highlights of the Miami Herald Article:

  • $810 for Florida Short Term Rental Host

  • Numbers from 2016

  • 40% increase year over year

  • 4.5 Million Guests
