Sydney is ranked the second highest city to recoup investment on a home using a peer to peer rental service like Homeaway or Airbnb with an expected yearly return of 11.96 percent.

A study by peer-to-peer motorhome rental platform SHAREaCAMPER found Frankfurt, Germany, is the best city to pay off a home using a peer-to-peer rental, with 13.48 percent expected yearly return.

The study ranked 31 cities by analysing the ratio of market to P2P rental prices, including any fees paid by the owner, for more than one thousand homes per city. Cities were ranked by a grand total of the time needed to recoup investments, based on the return of investment percentage, according to the occupancy rate.

SHAREaCAMPER CEO Florian Dahlmann said the sharing economy offers great individual experiences as well as flexibility.

"With peer to peer rental, people can make memories in the home they’ve always dreamed of owning," he said.

"Similarly, everyday people can pay off investments simply by renting out underused assets.

“The biggest lesson of our research is that you don’t need to charge exorbitant rental rates to pay off your investment.

"We are huge fans of win-win situations like this and we hope this research encourages development in more hesitant markets."

"Sydney placed second for ROI on P2P home rental with a projected 11.96 percent adjusted rate of yearly return.

"Boston had the lowest ROI followed by Paris and San Francisco."
