I had previously written an article on Airbnb and I received feedback that some felt my article was one sided against Airbnb; here I have come up with some reasons why Airbnb is good for New York landlords; I am certain you can think of additional reasons as to why participating in Airbnb activities is good for Landlords and New York. Feel free to contact me and make suggestions to add to the list. 1. Airbnb is good for landlords because it helps the landlord charge an even higher rent to tenants because then the tenants will be able to rely on additional income from Airbnb in order to pay the higher rent. 2. Airbnb causes tenants to maintain their apartment in a better condition so that it is attractive to Airbnb guests and presentable, so that they will get good ratings and be able to rent on Airbnb on a regular basis. 3. Airbnb is generally good for the neighborhood and the city because it encourages visitors and guests who might not be able to afford an expensive hotel but nonetheless want to visit the area, to travel to New York, and will introduce their money and spending for:
for airlines buses trains taxis
Broadway shows sporting events bars movies lounges
tourist souvenirs clothing electronics
fine dining casual dining fast food cafes The Airbnb activity then allows the Airbnb guests, by word of mouth, to encourage other visitors from wherever they came from to visit so that New York will have even more tourism, and a better economy which is good for landlords.
