Two years ago in AZ the state brought in a law that prohibits cities and towns from regulating short-term rentals.
In the city of Sedona, pop. 10,500, has about 3,000,000 tourist visits a year. Before the law came into effect the city had about 200-300 vacation rentals, now they have more than 1000. The result is many people who work in the city are unable to find long term accommodation and if they can the prices, have gone up by about 30%.
Is this a good thing, meaning current homeowners can make some money, or is it a bad thing because workers can't afford to live there?
