“I’m supporting it because Airbnb needs to be regulated,” LaMattina said. “I have concerns about investors coming into neighborhoods like East Boston, buying our properties and renting our units through Airbnb because they can make more money renting it daily. I have seen that happening in the North End. I have seen that happen in East Boston. If you live in the apartment, have an extra room and want to do one, fine. But if you’re an investor coming into my neighborhood, then I’ve got some concerns.”

LaMattina isn’t the only person with this concern. According to an Oct. 19, 2015 article from The American Prospect, Airbnb’s system allows landlords to rent out a space for short stays at high prices, which is more lucrative than having long-term tenants live in the space, incurring upkeep for the landlord.

The Prospect cites a number of examples of this. According to the article, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera filed a lawsuit against two property owners, accusing them of evicting longtime tenants, two of them disabled, so the owners could illegally convert the residential buildings into pricey tourist hotels using Airbnb, VRBO and other short-term rental services.

DiLullo agrees with LaMattina: Airbnb should be regulated.

“I think that within the sharing economy products – although they’re different formatting and target a different demographic – they should fall under the same regulations,” DiLullo said. “They shouldn’t have special treatment.”
