An Airbnb rental in San Francisco
On Tuesday, San Francisco residents voted against Proposition F, a measure that would have heavily regulated Airbnb rentals in the city. Most notably, the measure, if passed, would have capped short-term rentals for a single residence at 75 nights a year, and require companies like Airbnb to take rentals off its site that violate this requirement.
Proposition F also would’ve required users to notify neighbors when they begin to host short-term rentals, and require quarterly guest and revenue reports from hosts.
“This election was a victory for the middle class and it was made possible by the 138,000 members of the Airbnb community who had individual conversations with over 105,000 voters, knocked on 285,000 doors, including 55,000 today, and worked to generate support from more than 2,000 small, family-owned businesses in the city,” Airbnb’s Chris Lehane wrote in a statement. “This effort shows that home sharing is both a community and a movement.”
Airbnb spent roughly $8 million to defeat the measure.
