Most of these new laws are specifically targeting online booking platforms like Airbnb and VRBO. Buying an investment property for Airbnb can prove quite complex if you haven’t read up on your city’s guidelines.So what’s the latest news for Airbnb in the Cleveland real estate market? Well, you might have heard about a Cleveland councilman proposing a temporary ban on Airbnb back in March of 2018. Councilman Tony Brancatelli wanted to enforce laws which banned short term rentals in residential districts. A public hearing on his legislation hasn’t been scheduled yet, but he doesn’t believe it will get to the point of an actual ban.Cleveland previously set short term lodging regulations in 2016 and has a tax-collection deal with Airbnb. This ensures that Cleveland’s 3 percent transient-occupancy tax on hotel rooms also gets collected for short term rentals of spare rooms, apartments, condos, and even entire houses.Now, what does this mean for Airbnb investors in the Cleveland real estate market in 2019? Well, it’s against the law for an off-site real estate investor to operate a full-time Airbnb property in a residential area of Cleveland (without seeking a zoning change and other regulatory approvals). You are only allowed to host short term tenants in your primary residence all year long. However, hosts renting out more than 91 days in a year must pay $35 to add their homes to the city’s rental registry.Related: Airbnb Regulations 2018: Invest in These Cities Where Airbnb Is LegalCleveland Housing Market Forecast: Mashvisor’s DataInvesting in Cleveland real estate could be a lot easier with some accurate and reliable data by your side.
