Pros

  • A STRINSIGHTS subscription lets you research markets in the entire United States.  Other market intelligence companies have users subscribe to each market individually, or charge a much higher price to research the entire United States. This makes STR Insights a great value.
  • An easy-to-use interface.
  • Being able to search by destination type is a fabulous feature when you have no clue where to start your market research other than knowing you want a property near a beach, mountains, National Park, etc.
  • The results of searches are easy to understand and digest.
  • It’s convenient to connect with realtors and lenders who know about the unique needs of STR investors.
  • STR Insights provides pricing valuation data, this valuation has filtered to only include short term rental properties and exclude other types of homes. That is very powerful.
  • Regulation data - It's very helpful to have a high level sense of the regulatory environment of different markets.  It's can be a key decision making criteria for some STR investors.
  • STR Insights is a new company with a strong roadmap.  It will be great to see how the company evolves and the new features they launch.

Cons

  • It’s important to understand that the ROI estimates are based on historical information. Individual markets, or the broader STR industry, may experience events that change the ROI potential of a particular property.
  • When you have access to search the entire US you may find an overwhelming number of potential markets to consider.  Utilizing the filtering features is critical.
  • Currently the pricing valuations don't break out valuation of different property types (entire home, condo, multi-family, etc).
  • STR Insights only provides data for the US, eventually it would be great if users could search globally.
