On a NYC forum I’m on, a member just posted that she followed all the same rules we do (owns a single family home, lives there while she hosts) but just got fined $12k by the city anyway.
I haven’t done the “unlist and delete” option, because maybe there will be a change, but between feeling persecuted by Airbnb’s star system and now the city too, I don’t think this will work for me and my family in the short term. Maybe we’ll rent longer term. Maybe we’ll move my teenager into the spare room. Maybe we’ll house a refugee family. I don’t know.
But if I post less often, that’s why. No new guest stories to entertain you all with. Sniffle.
Or I’ll be doing strictly word of mouth/ friends and family. Not sure. Really just reeling from this new attack. Ugh.
