Good for Floridians

Just read that the poll commissioned by Airbnb shows that “Floridians are overwhelmingly supportive of the idea of people renting out their homes to tourists” (read more here).

The Survey also shows that people support taking away cities’ and counties’ powers to limit vacation rentals, and leave them to the State. Interestingly the responses from democrat and republicans were pretty even in this regard.

Also interesting that South Floridians were the least supportive of taking the control from the locals, with 78% in favor of not regulation by the local governments vs. 80% of the rest of surveyed. Yet, even 78% to me is overwhelming support for the measure.

Hi Jon - Interesting post (and yes , I clicked through). If we have a similar issue, it would be in the ski communities, and most of the development up there was done with short-term rentals in mind. I think we're mostly unregulated at this point.

Dick Greenberg - usually regulation is serving some groups. Some benefit, some suffer. And the reason for the regulation is often not the actual need, but rather the ctivity of some groups. Hotel lobby may sway the minicipality to prohibit private vacation rentals, and you might be sure that they would cite concern for the quality of service.

Sometimes it is funny, sometimes pathetic   :)

Interesting to know and I can understand some communities not liking the idea of homes being rented out on a daily/weekly basis...and I don't like regulation either...but, when it is next door to you I think attitudes change, Jon Zolsky, Daytona Beach, FL
