Airbnb impact on Dublin housing market must be addressed
San Francisco compulsory registration scheme one example Dublin could follow
More than 20,000 Irish rentals are listed currently on Airbnb, some 7,000 in Dublin alone.
When I decided to permanently move out of out my small house in Dublin’s city centre, I spent months debating what to do with it.
Rent it out into a city rental market desperately short of properties, and take on the role of landlord with long-term tenants and long-term legal obligations? Or list the house with the self-termed “online marketing and hospitality service” Airbnb, and go for short-term lets and higher turnover?
