Featured Research

Using text-mining analysis, I use Airbnb hosts’ extensive transaction-level data and their textual survey responses to extract hosts’ latent motivations for sharing their homes. My analysis suggests that hosts are driven not only by the motivation “to earn cash,” but also by intrinsic motivations such as “to share beauty” and “to meet people.” Surprising to many, in fact, these two latter groups of hosts perform better on Airbnb: they post more photos, write more to attract guests, and they also receive higher guest satisfaction ratings, and have a higher CLV compared to those with a monetary motivation.
