Airbnb has significantly altered the affordability equation for home owners. Now we have owners who normally wouldn’t be able to afford their mortgages, renting out their home partially to be able to afford the payments. The other impact is investors buying homes outright to turn them into Airbnb rentals. The only way to reverse this effect is to boycott Airbnbs if we want to revert back to owning our residential neighborhoods. Otherwise, we are actively rewarding those investors for destroying our home affordability.
