I’m an Airbnb host in Chicago.

But isn’t what you’re describing keeping a potential rental off the market? You say you’ve had tenants before, but you make much more off of airbnb. That’s the problem, at least here in NYC, and also in San Francisco: landlords are keeping rentals off of the incredibly tight market (less than 3% vacancy rate) because they make more money with airbnb. This is driving up our cost of housing, in an already impossible market.
