How a millennial couple took 15 fucking homes away from the market.
A millennial couple needs to fucking kill themselves.
This is painfully stupid. You don't take anything "away" from the market. That's your attempt to manipulate thinking.
Homes are "taken off the market" when they are sold. That's a phrase that is accurate, because if my personal property isn't for sale, then it's not "on the market".
This couple bought these homes and turned them into income streams, just like a person who buys and rents out properties to those who can't afford to buy.
Homes put up on AirBnB for short term rentals are unavailable for traditional, leased rentals.
Dozens of homes sitting vacant for weeks/months between "guests" are unavailable for people seeking stable, long term housing.
"Anybody seeking long term housing can do so on AirBnB" is horseshit, btw. Anybody doing that doesn't get any of the rights and protections that come with a lease.
