This is a 4.9 listing /super host status. We were booked back to back for months, now it's been over 90 days with 

 No bookings, No inquiries. I've dropped and raised the price removed cleaning at times. I've added a sale and more.

This all started when the law changed prohibited short term and I changed the minimum to 31 days.

No registration is required for 31 days or more. Still nothing. I have seen others post about this but there is no answer to what happened in the end. The listing is visible in a search but somehow not producing results. It doesn't make sense. It seems there is a way for it to be technically visible but not actually bookable or possibly not visible to many. If you have had this issue and resolved this issue please let me know what you did

Hi @Jessica134 

 

Have you checked on Airdna or similar to see what demand is like for 30 day stays in your area? 

maybe Airbnb is not the right or main platform for longer term bookings in your location ? Are you advertising on other platforms and taking direct bookings 

 

maybe there is falling demand in your city 

 

please ignore the advertising links @Sudsrung0  is directly you to. She gets a commission for sending traffic to these sites 

I am a co host on this particular listing, I have 3 other listings with in 6 miles that are consistently booked for mid term stays (31. Days plus)  other plat forms have several inquiries for mid term stays and yes I have had to utilize them. It's definitely not the issue I just like the insurance on airbnb

Personally I am not playing with rates or perks. I believe that for whatever reason, people are not traveling as much as they did in the past. It won’t matter what I charge in this case. Why discount it?

The issue is absolutely a tech issue and you are correct none of the suggestions Airbnb has offered worked. It's 100% the result of some filter. The company used when the law changed. So the listing is visible but not bookable. Demand is up and the cost is down everyone else with a comparable listing in the area is renting at double the price with lower star ratings, some are not even super host

The Airbnb party is over for many if you go on to FB lots of areas closing down STR, 

 

Maybe this article will help,**[Link removed in line with the Community Center Guidelines]

 

Additionally, the myth that airbnb increases the cost of long term rentals is a complete lie promoted by the hotel industry. The short term market is less than a half a percent . Since the laws changed  and  banned a large percentage of short term the cost of housing and supply has not changed at all 

I read the article but it didn't provide any new information. It just a sales gimic to sign up for a service 

I looked at a lot of this but there are several people that are in california for business and have relocated that need temporary housing. My personal listing are booked for over 31 days with ease
