What predicts the cost of a vacation rental?

My Role

Independent data analyst

Tools

Python, Jupyter notebook, Python packages (numpy, pandas, sklearn, statsmodels, matplotlib, etc.)

Key Findings

Number of bedrooms and type of residence were the biggest predictors of the price of a vacation rental. Entire residence rentals with multiple bedrooms were most expensive

Implications

These findings could help rental listers decide what price to charge and help vacation rental companies forecast their revenue
