Despite Short-Term Occupancy and Peak Season Fluctuations, Boston Metro Vacation Rental Demand Continues To See Growth According To Recent RedAwning Market Report

Negative Impact of Supply Growth on Occupancy Rates and ADR Does Little To Derail The Boston Metro Area’s Status as One of The Country’s Top Lodging Markets

EMERYVILLE, CA – (October 30, 2019) —, the world’s largest network of vacation properties, today released an in-depth market report exploring the overall strength of  the vacation rental market in the Boston Metro Area despite irregular visitor booking patterns and unpredictable traveler trends. 

According to Pinnacle Advisory Group’s Sebastian Colella “Boston is, and will continue to be, one of the strongest lodging markets in the country as a result of diverse demand base and high barriers to entry.”  RedAwning’s report shows that vacation rental nights booked have increased significantly over the past two years, growing 44% from August 2017 to August 2018. 

“With so many recent fluctuations to what we have come to expect as the ‘norm’ for Boston Metro market trends,  it’s encouraging to know that RevPAR, ADR and occupancy will continue to trend upward for Boston-based vacation rental managers and owners YOY, even if not moment to moment,” said RedAwning’s VP of Market Development, Johnathan Robinson. 

According to the report, June 2019 surprised data analysts by upstaging October with record high occupancy levels, suggesting a possible shift in traditional peak season for the area. Furthermore, the report insinuates a possible influx of market-wide corporate demand.

“The team at RedAwning is optimistic about the support we are able to provide to vacation rental managers and owners in urban areas, like Boston, where corporate housing demand is beginning to surge,” said Robinson. “Our data suggests that an increase to vacation rental demand among business travelers in the Boston Metro area plays an integral role in the market’s lodging value and we look forward to helping our partners satiate this growing demand.” 

Redawning’s bookings index in the Boston Metro Area has increased 786% YOY and is outperforming the region by 444%. RedAwning Property Manager partners have seen a 215% YOY increase in bookings with the overall mix of properties moving toward smaller units and smaller party sizes.
