I live in a small somewhat rural city. It’s not a popular destination for vacationers and travelers, but Airbnb bookings do seem to keep us busy with business travelers and people passing through the area - and weddings, funerals, reunions, etc. There are not many listings, and those listed range from the completely absurd to high-end B&Bs. You can count on 2 hands the number of Airbnb listings within our city. Among them appear to be some clearly bogus listings. Such as one listing that that is unfurnished and even a guest said, “You will need to bring things to cook with plates silverware cups etc.”
Has anyone else seen an increase of bogus or fake listings in their area? Should I be concerned that these listings might be driving down the perceived quality of our listing?
