Airbnb recently released a report revealing the #1 most “wish-listed” Airbnb listing in each of the top 20 home sharing cities in Mississippi, including Oxford and Tupelo.

Airbnb’s “wish-list” function allows users to save the listings they most desire when planning trips, whether it be a beautiful kitchen, a peaceful backyard, or a charming neighborhood that catches their eye. The most wish-listed listings in Mississippi are among the most unique and special homes on Airbnb’s platform.

Between January and December 2017, residents of the Magnolia State made $6.4 million by sharing their homes with tourists, college football fans, and business travelers.

Here’s how the numbers break down:

  • A total of 50,000 Airbnb guest arrivals occurred across the state.
  • Approximately 1,300 Mississippi families hosted at least one Airbnb guest.
  • The typical host shared their home 17 nights and earned $3,700 in additional income.
  • Fifty-nine percent of Airbnb hosts in Mississippi are women.
