Travel Short-term rental rules made in Denver will play out in other markets

Major cities are outright banning short-term rentals. Curtis was in town last week to host a roundtable talk with vacation-rental businesses and homeowners who rent on the short-term market. "She's come back and talked to our committee three or four times in the last year." Members of the committee didn't want to legalize short-term rentals at all. New York City has banned short-term rentals, but websites still list thousands of homes available to travelers.

The rules deem short-term rental as a home occupation that cannot take up more than 25 percent of a home. In November, he was the first Aurora homeowner to secure a short-term rental license. Aurora is the latest among hundreds of cities to craft rules to manage the meteoric growth of short-term rentals. Aurora is nearing adoption of short-term rental rules that, like those proposed for Denver, would limit rentals to permanent residents offering a portion of their homes to travelers.

Don't limit short-term rentals in Denver

Unfortunately, the City Council is considering legislation that will restrict the burgeoning short-term rental (STR) market . Furthermore, restricting STRs to primary residences would not preempt potential wrongdoings. As currently written, the primary residency restriction will drive some short-term rentals underground. A trio of professors from the University of Denver used a survey of 408 VRBO renters to identify the economic benefits of STRs in the Denver area.

A sensible plan for Denver short-term rentals

Councilwoman Mary Beth Susman, who initiated the look at short-term rentals in 2014, has done a good job in pursuing three important goals. The short-term rental industry and its advocates have pushed back on the primary residence rule, and no wonder. Denver officials estimate that there are 2,000 short-term rentals listed online in city limits, a number that is probably only going to grow. So do the proposed fees: $50 for a tax license and $25 annually for a business license.
