Today, we are going to look at the best Airbnb business locations for 2021. We aren’t going to mention specific cities, but we are going to look at what types of locations are going to work really well in 2021 no matter where you are located in the world, whether you are going to do it remotely or where you are located. If starting a business managing Airbnb properties is something you’re interested in learning more about, make sure you check out the link below for the free training. 

Historically, downtown cities have performed really well on Airbnb because a lot of tourists come to visit the big cities like New York and LA. Right now, it isn’t that these areas aren’t doing well, but there is another type of location that is doing exceptionally well. That location is the areas outside of the major cities that are desirable for locals to travel for a weekend getaway or a staycation. For obvious reasons, domestic travel has been the majority of travel in 2020. So for the millions of people that live in the large cities, they are going to want to go to places that are relatively close but still out of the city for a vacation. 

Now, any of those places may work really well right now during tha pandemic. But once things start to become more normal again, some of those locations might not perform as well. So it’s important to choose an area that is attractive both to locals looking for a weekend getaway and also tourists. I’ll give you a Canadian example. Vancouver is a really big city by Canadian standards. It’s a great place for properties and it does really well. Right now, though, the city of Whistler is probably a better option. It is about 2 hours north, it’s a popular ski destination, so it is a popular area where people from Vancouver go for a vacation, but it’s also a really popular spot for outside tourism as well. Another great example is Banff. It’s a couple hours away from Calgary, so it’s a great place for a weekend getaway. But it’s absolutely beautiful and a very popular tourist spot. Similar locations are the mountains outside of Dever, Colorado. These are popular areas year round, both in the summer and the winter. 

If you want to build yourself a sustainable business, you’re going to want to find properties that are attractive both for domestic and international tourism. That way you’re protected no matter what happens with the tourism and travel industry in 2021.

So with all that now behind us, let's dive into it. Let's talk about the best locations for your Airbnb business going into 2021. Now I shared in another video not too long ago on this channel about some of the best locations right now and sort of the tail end of 2020 for Airbnb and starting your Airbnb management business. And they were largely areas that were outside of city centers. And so historically downtown cities course have performed really well on Airbnb because a lot of tourists will come into big cities like New York, Boston, LA, San Francisco, whatever it might be, and you're gonna get a lot of bookings there and have a very successful business there.

Now it's not that those areas don't do well right now they're not doing as well, certainly but one set of areas one type of area that does exceptionally well right now is areas outside of the city court outside of major cities that are desirable for the locals to travel to for a weekend getaway or staycation of sorts. The reason being that the majority of travel in 2020, for obvious reasons has been domestic travel, a lot of being hyper domestic meaning people that are traveling two or three hours away from their from their place they reside, right. And so if you have a ton of people residing in a downtown urban center, like la New York, then having properties outside of that area, you know, having property in Joshua Tree managing properties in upstate New York and some in some really beautiful areas out there where a lot of New Yorkers are going to get away for the weekend or for a week long stay, that is going to do quite well.

So we've talked about that. We've already addressed that in a previous video. So here's what I want to share with you for going into 2021. What are going to be some of the best locations to get started. Well, those locations are going to be good. However, if you go into the wrong location there and you start in an area that's doing really well right now, it might not do well after we get a vaccine after things start to become more normal again. However, if you pick the right area, it's going to do well just about any time and any different thing that can that can be thrown its way.

Now what you want to look for is an area that is attractive to both locals that are trying to get a weekend getaway, or you know staycation people are looking to travel within a couple hours of their home. But it's also highly attractive to tourists. So what do I mean by this? Well take for example, I'll give you a Canadian example here Whistler now Vancouver is a really big city in British Columbia in Canada, really big city city by Canadian standards that is and so that is a great place for properties. It does pretty well. You know everything's good about Vancouver, but Whistler is probably even better if you're just starting out right now, the reason being that Whistler is about two hours north of Vancouver, and it's a popular ski destination.

And so a lot of people from Vancouver like to get up there for skiing for hiking just for any kind of a weekend getaway. So in a time, like right now, it's gonna do really, really well on short term rental, because a lot of people are moving from Vancouver, and they're going up to Whistler for a couple of days for a couple of weeks to get away from the city. So in terms of just right now, in early 2021, it's going to do really, really well. And then on the other side of that you've got tourists coming in, and it's actually a really popular spot for a lot of tourism. Tons of people come in because it's got incredible hiking, it's got incredible skiing, there's a lot that has to offer. And so there's also a lot of mountain biking in that area.

We've got tons of people that are coming in from Australia, they'd love to visit Whistler, there's something about Australians, they just absolutely love coming over and doing a ski getaway over in Whistler, but a lot of people that traveled to Canada are oftentimes going to visit a place like Whistler. Another great example of a place similar to this is Banff, Alberta. It's a couple hours outside of Calgary. And so if you're in Calgary, it's a great place to go for a weekend getaway. But it's also absolutely beautiful. Some of the most stunning shots that you probably seen of Canada, if you think about, you know, your idea of visiting Canada and Canada tourism, those nature photography shots that you might have seen these beautiful crystal clear, bright blue lakes, that would be a lot of that in areas like Lake Louise and Banff, which are just a couple hours outside of Calgary.

So again, those areas are gonna be really attractive to outside tourists coming in from international bases once things start to open back up again. But they're also highly attractive to locals that are looking for a little getaway. Now, those are just two examples that I've given in Canada. But the reality is that all throughout all throughout the United States and all kinds of other countries, there are really great examples of these types of places as well. So again, I'll give you another example that's in where I know a lot of people here watching these videos are in the US. And so I want to give an example of somewhere in America that would really kind of fit this criteria as well.

So let's look at the mountains outside of Denver, Colorado. Now, a lot of people in Denver are going to get up into the Rocky Mountains into places like for example, Estes Park, other surrounding areas around there, because the hiking is fantastic. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. There's all kinds of great lodges and things, places to get away for a weekend. Now, a lot of people that are traveling to America internationally, are attracted to the Rocky Mountains, and they know that they're absolutely stunning, absolutely beautiful. And so if you want to get out there, you want to do any kind of big skiing, if you want to go hiking, if you want to see wildlife, summertime, wintertime, it's always great to get there.

And there's a lot of international tourism that's directed not in that in those areas as well. Another great example would be Joshua Tree National Park, Joshua Tree is known all over the place, a lot of people come in and they want to go out into the desert into places like Joshua Tree. In California, however, you've also got people from LA and San Diego that want to go out to Joshua Tree for a weekend getaway. There's tons of different examples like this. And that would be my recommendation for the best location to start your Airbnb management business in 2021. Now, by no means Does this mean that other areas are not good, I'm just just trying to narrow things down and show what we think are going to be some of the best performing areas right now in long term. And what I'd recommend is looking for an area that lends itself really well to local domestic tourism, and also lends itself well to international tourism.

That way, if we have anything like this happen again, in the future, you're going to be totally covered. But in normal times, those properties are also going to perform exceptionally well, you're gonna have a lot of consistency right across the board, you're going to really be able to insulate and protect your business from any kind of craziness going on in the world. So that would be my overall recommendation.
