Lodging and Housing: Municipal Challenges Webinar Series (Part 1 of 3)

Course Information:

Maine town and city leaders and staff wrestle with how – and whether – to regulate short-term rentals, which typically promote themselves through sites like Airbnb and VRBO. But do you really get it? Do you understand the financial underpinnings that drive people and businesses to buy existing housing stock in Maine and turn it into places where tourists and visitors stay, relax and party? During this one-hour, virtual webinar, a financial expert in the lodging and short-term rental industry will explain how it ticks, which is critically important as your community considers what to do about it.
