Sioux Falls considering de facto ban on short-term rental listings
Listing Sioux Falls residential properties on short-term rental sites like Airbnb and VRBO could soon be a no-no.
Members of the Sioux Falls City Council have begun conversations with the city attorney’s office about drafting an ordinance that could include prohibiting any new listing in residential-zoned neighborhoods. And that would all but eliminate the use of Airbnb and VRBO in Sioux Falls, where nearly every property listed on those sites now is located.
“I’ve had a lot of people and neighborhood groups approach me about how these are taking over their neighborhoods,” Councilor Curt Soehl told The Dakota Scout. “And people are worried about how it’s affecting the housing.”
