Airbnb listings for entire houses, Melbourne, January to October 2020

COVID-19Housing & homelessness

This graph shows the data for listings from InsideAirbnb for Melbourne during the period January to October 2020. It shows that listings for entire homes contracted by 22% since COVID-19 restrictions were introduced, equating to 3,661 dwellings that were presumably available previously for long term lease or purchase. The decline is most pronounced in the inner rings of Melbourne. It suggests that, while many of these properties might have been sold, re-occupied by owners, or left unoccupied, there was likely a substantial increase in the supply of longer term private rental properties in inner-Melbourne.
