What if my Property is Listed on Multiple Hosting Platforms?

With our de-duplicating algorithm, we can successfully match properties listed on multiple booking platforms, ensuring that the performance figures we report are accurate. 

Many hosts choose to list their property on multiple booking channels, such as Airbnb and VRBO. The benefits of this can be more exposure for your listing and potentially more bookings generated. 

Rather than showing inflated figures and overstating market performance by reporting revenue for a property from both Airbnb and VRBO, we’ve created a unique de-duplicating algorithm to bring you the most accurate numbers. Our algorithm is designed to pick up identical properties listed on both Airbnb and VRBO, using 14 metrics to determine whether a property is listed on both, such as location, listing titles, listing descriptions, number of bedrooms, and calendar availability.

You can see where a property is listed based on the logos shown on the property tile in MarketMinder. Properties that we have matched will show both the Airbnb and VRBO logos. The figures shown on these matched listings show the combined performance across both channels for the last 12 months.
