Vermont continues to see spikes in housing prices, and state officials have been discussing how the growth of short-term rentals (STRs) in the state has contributed to its housing crisis. Vermont Commissioner of Housing and Community Development Randolph’s Josh Hanford, however, thinks too much regulation on the rentals from the state could prove ineffective and that STRs are only a small part of the housing problem. Instead, he thinks regulating short-term rentals is best done at the local level. “Different communities have different problems they are trying to address with short-term rentals,” he said.
