A Match Made in Heaven or Hell? Airbnb and Your Community

As many of you may know, SB 824 sponsored by Senator Diaz, would have made it much more difficult if not impossible for your private residential community to restrict or prohibit short-term rental activity on internet platforms like Airbnb. While that bill did not pass the Florida Legislature, we have every expectation that Airbnb and similar companies will push for a reboot in the 2020 Legislative Session.

As such, it is important to provide our public policymakers with real data about how short-term rental activity impacts private communities. Becker is conducting a brief survey for community association owners, board members, and management professionals to better understand what’s important to you.

We hope that you will participate in the survey which will be open from July 8th to August 30th. The results will be shared with all respondents, policymakers, and the media at the culmination of the survey.
