Vacation Rental Policy at PGA West

PGA West
One of the most frequently asked questions regarding PGA West real estate is whether the short term rental policy that is now in place will continue in the future.  Currently you are able to lease out your PGA West home for less than 30 day intervals, weekly, or even nightly.  Many investors have purchased in PGA West for the sole purpose of taking advantage of their short term vacation rental policy. This policy is controversial and rumors of an upcoming vote  and possible changes have the community buzzing. 

At a California Lifestyle Realty meeting with PGA West membership this morning, membership confirmed that a vote was coming. Majority will decide whether the vacation rental property will remain in place or be restricted to a 30 day minimum.  We were informed that should the policy change, the current properties would be "grandfathered in" and will be able to continue with short term vaction rentals, until the property sells.  So- even if the policy does change- it will take many years for the short term vacation rentals to be flushed from the community.

Hello Kathy -  this is an important notice and one that is certain a work-in-progress but it's wise to give a head's up.

Good evening Kathy Schowe ,

Wow that is a change in policy. You are wise to get the word out. Has there been problems  or abuse that caused this new direction aimed at restricting short term rentals?

It is pretty common in our area for HOA's to limit short term vacation rentals. PGA has been an excetion for a long time.  Kathy

I find it annoying when changes like this are in the works.... sad in a way and politics aside everyone has been scared by the Pandemic, Endre

Endre Barath, Jr.  These are not changes due to COVID- most neighborhoods here in our area have limitations on short termvacation rentals.  K

I understand why some do not like short term vacation rentals. They also need to understand when the do away with it many buyers go away as well. This reduces values.

In some of our neighborhoods- limiting short term vacation rentals make them much more desirable. K

Kathy Schowe - People will always respect you when you keep them apprised of changes to policies. Vacation Rentals no doubt need to be changed because of the pandemic and whether or not the policy sticks or stays in place is something interesting parties need to know. You are doing a great job keeping people informed. 

By the way, that's another gorgeous photograph!!!
