Regulation also supports local economies by ensuring that short-term rentals are taxed and regulated in a way that benefits the community. This can help to generate revenue for local governments and support the local economy. Regulation also helps to maintain the character of neighborhoods by controlling the number of short-term rentals in a given area and preventing commercialization of residential neighborhoods.
