Airbnb is wrapping up quite a strong year in Florida, with hosts in the Sunshine State earning a combined $450 million in supplemental income in 2017, representing a 75 percent increase year over year.
The hospitality company says there are now 40,000 hosts who utilize the rental service, averaging out to about $6,700 annually per host. Airbnb secured tax agreements with six Florida counties this year, including Miami-Dade and Broward.
In October, Miami-Dade passed a new ordinance for short-term rental companies. Among the new regulations is the maximum overnight occupancy should not exceed two people per room, plus two per property for a maximum of 12.
Miami-Dade, Broward, and Osceola were the state’s top three counties in regards to Airbnb host income this year, raking in $134.6 million, $45.7 million, and $39.6 million, respectively.
