Short Term Rentals Devalue Our Property & Disrupt Neighborhoods

Over 1500 strangers a year when you live next door to a Short Term Vacation Rental! ----- Who Are They Next Door? --- Why So Many Cars? --- Why Are They Screaming?

Short Term Rentals Are Bringing Our Property Values Down!

(Rapper on STR Roof video was taken by a neighbor of the Jackson STR located in Section 3-1 on Peckham Dr. in Point Venture, TX.)

Practitioners selling real estate should keep this in mind: A single-family home or condo unit next door to a short-term rental — where the occupants change every few days — will take longer to sell and bring in lower offers. You never know who your neighbors could be, and that’s a classic situation of property stigma. In the future, real estate agents could be required to disclose to a seller or long-term renter the existence of a nearby STR. The California Association of REALTORS® may soon ask its Forms Committee to add a question to the Seller’s Property Questionnaire: “Is your home across from or next door to a short-term rental?” If agents fail to disclose nearby STRs they know about, they could open themselves up to a lawsuit by unhappy clients who end up living next door to one. The real estate industry needs to take a stand to protect residential zoning laws against STRs. Without this protection, property values will decline and cause neighborhood stress and disruption. Real estate agents will have another obstacle to overcome in marketing properties and could expose themselves to liability. Saving our communities and protecting our property values is the mission of our industry. I have worked hard as a real estate broker to pay for my home of 29 years. I did not buy in a transient motel zone and do not believe that the profit motives of these short-term rental companies and a few property owners should be allowed to negatively impact my home’s value, peace and quiet, and safety.
