City Futures needs your help with research

Calling all Airbnb hosts in Sydney and Melbourne

Are you an Airbnb host in Sydney or Melbourne, or have you considered advertising a property in these cities on Airbnb?  If so, UNSW researchers would love to hear about your motivations for using the service, your property decisions and your experiences to date, as part of a project examining the impact of Airbnb on the utilisation of private housing in our cities. The aim of the research is to provide policy-makers with critical insights into Airbnb’s impact on housing opportunity in these cities, and the implications for regulating the platform equitably and efficiently.

The project is being funded by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Instituteplease note that Airbnb, Inc. is neither involved in, nor connected with, this research project.

If you’re willing to participate in a 30 minute interview, please contact (you’ll be compensated with a $50 Coles gift card for your time). You can also find an online survey, as well as more information about the research, on the project webpage:
