Washington 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.
Starting from October 2019, property owners in Washington DC can only rent out one home—their primary residence—according to a city regulation act. To legally operate short-term rental, all hosts must register with the city. For those who wish to rent out an entire property, they must obtain an additional “vacation rental” endorsement.See Regulation Source
