SHAREaCAMPER Return on Investment 2017
Peer-to-peer (P2P) rental has already become a significant part of the world's economy. As new markets develop and more people choose to rent out their underused assets, opportunities grow both for investors and peers looking to make the most of their time and money.
At SHAREaCAMPER, we have developed the 2017 Return on Investment Index to show which cities and markets offer the quickest return on investment through peer-to-peer rental. We hope this research encourages more people in broader markets to take advantage of P2P rental platforms, and for city governments to make informed choices about legislation.
For 31 cities with highly developed sharing economies, the rankings were calculated by analyzing the ratio of regular market prices to P2P rental prices, including typical maintenance fees paid by the owner, for more than 1000 assets per city. Cities were ranked by a grand total of the time needed to recoup investments, based on the return of investment percentage, in each of the five categories according to the asset-specific occupancy rate. All currency conversions were correct on 15 April, 2017. The default ranking, listed under the column "Rank,” is indicative of the cities in which the return of investment is highest over all markets researched.
"The sharing economy offers great individual experiences as well as flexibility. With peer to peer rental, people can make memories in the camper, car, or boat they’ve always dreamed of owning. Similarly, everyday people can pay off investments simply by renting out underused assets," states SHAREaCAMPER CEO Florian Dahlmann. “The biggest lesson of our research is that you don’t need to charge exorbitant rental rates to pay off your investment. We are huge fans of win-win situations like this and we hope this research encourages development in more hesitant markets."
