Mashvisor lets you type in any city that may interest you for an Airbnb investment. Immediately, you will get an overview of every opportunity in that area. This allows you to analyze your area quickly, even if you are not familiar with it. This data includes average traditional and Airbnb cash-on-cash return for each area, a heat map to identify the areas that specifically meet your criteria, and how many Airbnb properties are already in that area.

Mashvisor is especially popular among first-time real estate investors. The platform helps them understand and analyze any city or neighborhood’s average investment performance, saving time and calories burned on research. More experienced real estate investors use Mashvisor to automatically calculate the returns of a potential investment, eliminating the need for spreadsheets. Real estate brokers and agents can also use the platform to advertise their properties, get their listings in front of investors, and give more information about the property to clients.

The traditional spreadsheet is replaced by an interactive purchase analysis and investment property calculator. Investors can enter their own numbers; expenses are pre-calculated, including interest rate, property tax, maintenance, and more. The calculator allows for one-time startup costs, recurring expenses, and mortgage/financing details.

Once you pick a neighborhood, you can export those neighborhood listings, learn about its average income, cash-on-cash return, home price, Airbnb occupancy rate, and neighborhood criminal strategy. You’ll also receive traditional and Airbnb rental comps.

Interactive filters will help you find your property, which means you can say goodbye to spreadsheets, and only view properties that meet your requirements. You can also learn more with a breakdown of expenses.

Investors use Mashvisor to know how much they’ll make on a property, even if it’s not listed on Airbnb itself. Comparisons can be made in rental income, cash flow, cash-on-cash return, cap rate, occupancy rate, and monthly expenses.

You’ll also be able to personalize the property by giving it your own rating. You can make notes on it and share it with friends, agents, and associates as a property report.

A value analysis feature lets you compare nearby Airbnb and traditional listings to the property of interest. The comparison includes an overall rating based on distance, property type, and the number of beds/baths. Also included: Airbnb occupancy rate, nightly rate and ratings/reviews, as well as rental income.

The listings tab gives an overall evaluation of the neighborhood and the property, as well as the Airbnb market. The valuation score is based on cash-on-cash return, cap rate, property design, rent appreciation rate and neighborhood rating.

Mashvisor receives its listing information from sources like MLS, Redfin, and Airbnb itself, among others. It then uses algorithms to make projections for nationwide areas. Comp data comes from HotPads, Rent Jungle, and other sources for traditional comps. Airbnb provides its own rental comps as well.
