Love the neighbor ? : agglomeration effect on home-sharing business

Xie, Karen L. (University of Denver, United States) ; Kwok, Linchi (California State Polytechnic University Pomona, United States) ; Heo, Cindy Yoonjoung (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

This study addresses two research questions: (1) Does agglomeration benefit home-sharing business? and (2) How host capacity and host experience moderate such agglomeration effect? A series of econometric analyses using large-scale data of Airbnb in New York City were employed. The findings suggest a positive agglomeration effect on a room-sharing listing’s performance. Such effect is mitigated as host capacity increases but remains strengthened as host experience expands. Theoretical and practical implications are highlighted.
