Despite celebration at the Airbnb San
Francisco headquarters yesterday, this short-term rental battle is probably
just beginning.
After running an eight million dollar campaign in the San
Francisco city election, Airbnb has emerged victorious, winning 55 percent of
votes in the fight against Proposition F, a ballot measure meant to restrict
short-term vacation rentals in San Francisco.
Those voters in favor of Prop F argued that Airbnb short-term rentals
restrict housing supply and cause rents to increase dramatically.
San
Franciscans in favor of Airbnb home sharing, on the other hand, claimed
short-term rentals helped them make ends meet, while bringing communities
together.
San Francisco is just one of many cities seeing a home-sharing boom, so
although Airbnb won the votes in this election, it may just be the beginning
of a longer battle over home-sharing policies and practices.
After Prop F proposed restrictions on short-term rentals in San Francisco,
Airbnb emerged victorious—read on for details about the vote.
