Airbnb, Short-Term Rentals and the Future of Housing

Routledge, November 2020

How do Airbnb and short-term rentals affect housing and communities? Locating the origins and success of Airbnb in the conditions wrought by the 2008 financial crisis, Barbara Schmitter Heisler and Lily M. Hoffmann bring together a diverse body of literature and construct case studies of cities in the US, Australia and Germany to examine the struggles of local authorities to protect their housing and neighborhoods from the increasing professionalization and commercialization of Airbnb.
