What restrictions and regulations?

funny

Depends on your strategy and the options. A lot of traditional vacation markets are getting harder to be successful, but higher end properties will still perform well.

I just launched my first STR last year, and so far it has gone well. There are some new regulations in the city I’m operating in that could be problematic, but I have two backup plans that both will still be cashflow positive. So I’m not too worried about it overall.

But today, I am not able to be satisfied and I don't want this to become an affliction so thought to share with others here and get to know the general sentiments.
