RealPage Partners With Airbnb To Launch Home Sharing Service
RealPage, Inc., a leading global provider of software and data analytics to the real estate industry is partnering exclusively with Airbnb to launch its apartment home sharing solution Migo, which will make it easier for residents and apartment owners to share their space on Airbnb and benefit from home sharing. Residents can recoup a portion of their monthly rent depending upon how frequently they home share exclusively on Airbnb. Owners can differentiate their apartment offering and share the financial benefits of home sharing with their residents.
“RealPage is very pleased to partner with Airbnb on this groundbreaking software and service,” said Steve Winn, CEO of RealPage. “The business of owning and managing apartment communities is changing rapidly as residents now expect the freedom to live, work, and travel on their own schedules and share their space when they are away. The industry has long sought a home sharing model that allows both owners and residents to participate and financially benefit without impacting existing residents or burdening management with extra work. Our exclusive partnership with Airbnb will make it easier for everyone to benefit from home sharing.”
RealPage developed the Migo technology to provide a range of services – from access control and screening to noise monitors and cleaning – that historically have been cumbersome. Residents can use the Migo app to link their Airbnb listing to their community, grant remote access to guests, schedule room cleanings, communicate with Migo support, monitor their home sharing performance, and more. Apartment owners can use the Migo app to gain insights into home sharing activity, and better serve their residents. Both owners and residents can confidently use these services, knowing they are backed by two industry leaders with decades of experience in real estate, travel, and technology.
Migo offers self-service and full-service home sharing options. With self-service, residents and owners can list their apartments or guest suites on Airbnb and self-manage all aspects of their Airbnb listing. With full-service, the Migo host team fully manages all aspects of the Airbnb listing for an additional fee. Residents can home share for the number of days authorized by the apartment manager and in accordance with local regulations. Managers can designate which units are eligible for home sharing, and the new AI Revenue Management system from RealPage will adjust base rents based on demand for this service.
“Airbnb has long supported and enabled building owners and their residents to benefit from home sharing and we’re thrilled that we can continue this work with RealPage — one of the largest property management software providers with more than two decades of experience —in its launch of Migo,” said Jesse Stein, Head of Airbnb for Real Estate.
