Based on the success of AIRBNB Real Estate Investing an Airbnb-powered apartment complex seems to be a logical next step. That is happening throughout the country now.

The financial benefits of operating short-term rentals are appealing to certain real estate investors, but also to professional or institutionalized property investors. A hybrid operation of some annual and some short term makes sense for bigger apartment complexes in the right locations.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Newgard Development Group.

Airbnb announced a $200 million investment to bring the home-sharing company’s branded apartment project to cities across the U.S. Miami-based Newgard Development Group is partnering with Airbnb to do this. Niido, a 324-unit building just outside of Orlando in Kissimmee, will feature hotel-like amenities and encourage tenants to sublease their spaces online. In a Niido Powered by Airbnb building, tenants are encouraged to rent out their units on Airbnb and, in return, their landlord  (Niido/Newgard) collects a 25 percent commission whenever they short term lease their unit. Like most new concepts in the economy, they have encountered some friction along the way. To make a historical point, a lot of people were against the motor car versus horses.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Niido Nashville.

Niido Nashville features resort-style services and amenities including an on-site MasterHost, resort-style pool, and much more.


Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Niido Orlando.

Niido Orlando is built on 12 acres, it was the first Niido Powered by Airbnb community, it includes 324 luxury apartment homes. Niido Orlando is located minutes from Disney World.
