The AirBnB phenomenon –
Impact and Opportunities of the Collaborative Economy and Disruptive Technologies: how should Edinburgh respond to short-term letting.
A report by University of Sheffield academic Alasdair Rae showed that 9,638 properties were listed for short-term let in Edinburgh on the short term letting site AirBnB in September 2017, an increase of 54% in just over a year from 6,272 in July 2016. With a booming tourism sector, is this a positive market response, or does it represent a major threat to the residential fabric of the City?
