re: Future of AirBnB in Nola?
Yeah you are definitely right that Airbnb isn't the only player--but of course the others aren't cooperating with the city at this time, and hence their data is "invisible".

Airbnb will only let you rent for 90 days a year on their website right?


Apparently not--I think they leave all enforcement activities to the city. It's the city's responsibility to subpoena data on owner accounts they suspect are in violation of the law; from what I understand, Airbnb only hands over mass and masked data to the city, in the (supposed) interest of protecting their users.

Interesting. When I was looking at places in London around this time last year, London had the 90 day rule and they literally would not allow more than 90 nights of rentals. I don't know how they were controlling it from an owner standpoint, but from a potential renter standpoint there was definitely a bunch of dates blocked off. Most properties were only rented for certain months, and then had the rest of the year blocked.

Yeah, that points back to my original question. If the city enforces the 90-day rule (so far they have not), what you'll see is lots of airbnb owners voluntarily blocking off dates, especially regular weekdays, in order to save their 90 days for mardi gras, jazz fest, and other big holidays and weekends. So long as booking.com and others are still operating outside the law, those same owners will probably try to make up for their lost business on those websites.

No one is going to do that long term, no one. Its not sustainable, the 90 day idea is a joke.

I take that back, the people that will do it are those that have a mother in law suite or something like that and rent it out for the big events. But as far as an apartment goes, you can't rent the whole thing out for only 90 days a year. You'd be better off long term leasing. So people are going to cheat the system, or not do short term at all. Which I know is the idea, but still.

The one person it does help, is someone that rents to say Tulane students while they are in school and then does 90 days of summer rentals to tourists.

Which is fine. I like the idea of allowing it only in certain areas of town, business districts mostly.

The only dumb thing about that though especially for a city like NOLA, is everything is mixed up. I mean you have hotels across the street from Residential areas all over town. So its incredibly inconsistent.

Thanks for the link. Fortunately that wouldn't affect me at this point (fingers crossed).
