In HOA’s or communities with strict minimum rental time frames for unit rentals such as 30 days, why is there still negative sentiment about them? Even in a neighborhood of let’s say 100 units, when 10 of them are rentals, people become worried that the neighborhood is turning into a rental community and then want the HOA or local governing authority to raise the threshold to 6 months or even limit the number of rentals. What explains this worry?
I could find no research that a high number of rental units (with a high minimum rental time such as 30 days) lowers property values. I do know that a limiting the number of rentals in a community would make a property more difficult to sell because it would reduce the number of potential buyers and that could easily lower property values.
