Let ’em rent! Airbnb is a good thing for the Jersey shore
Let 'em rent!
There is no compelling reason to over-regulate the market here for Airbnb's at the Jersey Shore.
People are either comfortable or they're not letting strangers into their homes without the guidance of a realtor or management company. The real issue is local rules on capacity. Airbnb doesn't automatically allow for owners to get around a maximum number of occupants. Only in New Jersey do politicians look at a great boon to local economies with an eye toward higher taxes. It's outrageous to think that a rental at a home compares to a hotel stay. Maybe what we should do is lower hotel taxes.
How about stimulating tourism instead of stifling the marketplace?
