The data visualization depicts the 6,788 vacation rentals listed on Airbnb and VRBO for San Francisco. There are currently 5,503 Airbnb listings, up from less than 5,000 last June and 1,800 in 2012, according to a previous investigation by the San Francisco Chronicle. In those two years, Airbnb's valuation has inflated from $2.5 billion to $13 billion.
That seems like a ridiculously high number of vacation rentals.
Also amazing they could build a $13 billion business on 5500 rental homes.
