Phoenix Airbnb & Short-Term Rental Regulations are important to any investor or host thinking about starting a short-term rental property. We've pulled together data and information from government and other sources to make it easier for you to not just see the regulation and ordinances on short-term rentals, but also get an overview of the short-term rental activity and potential, real estate prices and trends, and population size and growth.
Similar to Houston’s notable lack of specific short term rental ordinances, vacation rentals are largely unregulated in Phoenix. A statewide law passed in 2017 expressly prohibits most local regulation of short term rentals across Arizona, much to the chagrin of more progressive cities like Tucson and Sedona. Currently in Phoenix, short term rentals are governed by existing zoning regulations and not much else. There are no residency requirements, no annual caps on nights rented, and no limit on the number of short term rental properties a host can operate. State and local lodging taxes are collected automatically by the major listing platforms and hosts are required to post their tax license number on all ads and listings.
