Kuala Lumpur Airbnb Management FAQ

Kuala Lumpur is the fastest-growing city in Asia. It is home to the Petronas Twin Towers which is the center of attraction to visitors. Around 14 million people visit Kuala Lumpur annually. The Airbnb market in Kuala Lumpur looks like a slow but competitive market. Kuala Lumpur has around 10.5K rentals available. The occupancy rate on average remains around 48%, in busy months however it goes to 61%. 

Kuala Lumpur is a competitive market because 10.5K rentals are already operating in this city. Though it does not show that it is profitable. The average daily rate is counted as only $52 each month, with the highest at $58 and the lowest at $49. The occupancy rate is also not impressive, the rental seems to remain half vacate throughout the year. The average revenue generated by each rental is around $574 each month. Profitability cannot be ensured in this market. 

There are no specific laws issued by the government to host an Airbnb in Malaysia. You need to obtain a license from the authorities, your property should not be subsidized by the government. You also need to have a Certificate of Compliance and Completion (CCC). You also need to have safety measures built into your rental like smoke detectors and alarms, portable fire extinguishers, and an emergency evacuation plan. Going through the laws before investing in the business is always the best way to go. Also, keep an eye on any updated rules so that you can comply with the changed rules.
