S.F. Attempts (Again) to Regulate Airbnb

On Tuesday S.F. supervisors will revisit regulations on Airbnb, a hot issue for homeowners and tenants alike. Those who want tighter controls on home shares say landlords are taking hundreds of rentals off the market, exacerbating the city's tight housing stock and astronomical prices. The stricter of two proposals to alter the home-share laws would limit rentals to 60 days a year, reports the AP. It is expected to fall short at the Board of Supervisors meeting and end up before voters. S.F. is facing a huge housing crisis, and Airbnb rentals are making it worse, according to Supervisor David Campos, author of the proposal. In 2014, supervisors approved an ordinance that caps rentals of entire homes at 90 days and leaves hosted rentals untouched. [AP]
