According to Airbnb, there are nearly 9,500 listings for short-term rentals in San Francisco on Airbnb alone, listed by 7,046 unique hosts.
According to the City, it has received a total of 1,647 applications to register as a legal host.
And as such, it would appear that roughly 77 percent of all hosts in San Francisco remain out of compliance with the City’s registration requirement which has been in place for over a year.
In addition, an estimated 26.1 percent of listings for “un-hosted” stays appear to have been rented for more than 90 nights a year, with a median of 180 nights, which violates the City’s 90-night cap.
And in terms of enforcement, the City’s dedicated Office of Short-Term Rentals, which has an operating budget of $900,000 a year, has so far pursued 322 enforcement cases against the aforementioned 5,400 scofflaws, which has resulted in a grand total of 79 notices of violation and $680,000 in assessed penalties, according to a just released accounting of Short Term rental activity in San Francisco prepared by the City.
