Do you have any short-term rental investments that have been affected by the Coronavirus? On a recent episode of Real Estate News for Investors, Kathy Fettke discusses the impact the pandemic has had on the short-term rental industry as well as what Airbnb has been doing to address it.
“Airbnb has set up a fund to help hosts dealing with coronavirus cancellations. Travelers ditched plans for vacations, work trips, and family get-togethers when the virus spread. And then, Airbnb promised full refunds. Airbnb’s “Host Relief Fund” will help cover some of the lost revenue, but many hosts are coming up short.”
