Pay for your next vacation by becoming an Airbnb host - $250 cash bonus for first time hosts in Toronto

AirBNB cash bonus for new hosts in Toronto

It's a fact: Airbnb wants more hosts in Toronto.

There are certain cities around the world (Paris for example) that have an over-supply of Airbnb hosts. And then there are cities like Toronto, that have a shortage of hosts. But there are still a *lot* of people looking for a place to stay in Toronto.

What this means for someone in Toronto willing to become an Airbnb host is that you can easily help pay for your next vacation (or your mortgage) by renting out an extra room in your apartment or house, particularly in the high demand seasons of spring & summer, or around holiday dates.

On top of that, Airbnb is currently offering a $250 cash bonus incentive to anyone in Toronto who becomes an Airbnb host for the first time.

How much can I earn by being an Airbnb host?

When I contacted Airbnb to ask about potential earnings as a host in the Toronto area, they told me "Toronto hosts can earn up to $680CAD per week during the summer travel season", and that this was based on "the average weekly earnings from the top 10% of hosts during the 2015 summer travel season".

The Airbnb website/app has a handy feature that shows you the average price of what places are going for in different markets.

Using this feature, I came up with the following estimates for what an Airbnb host could earn (on average) in the summer of 2016 in the Toronto market.
