10% tourism increase in 2017 to 2018 opens up opportunities for popular short-term rentals to meet rising demand in Broward County
It is essential for vacation rental managers in Broward County to start distributing their listings on a global level to stay competitive as the scope of tourism seems to be widening in this region.
EMERYVILLE, Calif. (PRWEB)
October 01, 2019
RedAwning.com, the world’s largest network of vacation properties, recently released an in-depth market report exploring tourism and accommodation trends in Florida’s Broward County. The report highlights record high occupancy rates of 86% for the county in Q1 2019, with Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale leading the pack.
According to the report, the market in Broward County has seen a 5% RevPAR increase and nation-leading ADR growth rates of 6.0%. The report suggests these numbers stem from halted supply growth due to a slow 2016 and 2017 followed by a 10% tourism increase in the County from 2017 to 2018.
“Broward County hosted an estimated 14 million business and leisure travelers in 2018, many of whom visited from outside of the country,” said RedAwning’s VP of Market Development, Johnathan Robinson. “It is essential for vacation rental managers in Broward County to start distributing their listings on a global level to stay competitive as the scope of tourism seems to be widening in this region.”
The report also uncovers Airbnb and HomeAway as the most popular OTAs for visitors in Broward County with a combined growth rate of 192% since Q2 2016. “RedAwning distributes listings on every major online travel channel, including HomeAway and Airbnb, plus additional unique (and exclusive) channels like RedAwning.com, eBay Travel, RedAwning Travel Pro and Vacation Rentals by Choice. Broward-based RedAwning partners are well-positioned to succeed in this blossoming market.”
According to the report, over 36 million domestic and international travelers passed through Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) last year and the lodging sector in this market has done much to accommodate the demand growth. According to statistics from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, some 34K hotel rooms in Broward County are projected to open through 2024, 70% of which will be located in the Upper-Upscale or Upscale class.
As hotel inventory in the county continues to grow, so does Redawning’s collection of Broward-based alternative accommodation listings. According to the report, Redawning partners based in the region have seen a 186% increase in bookings YOY, outperforming industry average by 263% during the first half of 2019.
“The team at RedAwning is delighted to see demand in this market grow at such a rapid pace and we look forward to continuing to help Broward-based partners succeed at both the global and local level,” said Robinson.
