This paper presents a predictive model of Airbnb sales in Copenhagen, build on a dataset with over a 33-months of Airbnb bookings in Copenhagen and related searches on Google. Moreover, geospatial patterns of the AIRBNB listings are detected by constructing a 100 m x 100 m grid cells in UTM 32 coordinates of the city of Copenhagen. The predictive models built are a stepwise regression model, which is compared with a neural network model, both performing well on training as well as on k fold cross validation data with an R2 value on 86%-96%.
