That's a tough one. I sure like renting them, but I wouldn't want one next door to me!

There's a big pushback against these locally. Some doctor bought up 3-4 big houses in our local historic district and was doing Airbnb until the neighbors and area hotels raised a ruckus and the city shut him down. These are huge houses that he's hard pressed to rent otherwise as few will want to heat them or cover electric as a single rental. Guy is stuck between a rock and a hard place.

they absolutely would need licensed and inspected where I live. perhaps years ago they were sliding under the radar and a good thing but no more.

the seminar the other week - he was renting converted warehouse space for bachelor parties ... no way in the world would that fly under the radar.

There was a subdivision in Galveston a few years back that banned short term rentals. Considering that island's economy revolves around tourism/vacations, that was very short-sighted of them. In response, many of the local property management companies joined together to form an organization whose purpose is to provide security, monitor city developments, and run interference with the city, residents, and property owners.

We own a house there and our property management company is focused on limiting the type of rentals that cause issues - bachelor parties, prom parties, etc.
