Whether you know it or not, there is a war on vacation rental homes in Las Vegas. The city of Las Vegas has literally turned hostile towards homeowners who want to rent their homes for less than 30 days. Weekend vacation rentals, it seems, are unwelcome in any form. Even AirBNB and Homeaway have made note of the issues happening in Las Vegas and some vacation rental sites are refusing to take new vacation rental home listings in the area. This is a tremendous problem for anyone needing a ready-to-use home for short term in Las Vegas. Turnkey rentals may be the answer for those renters as well as for homeowners looking for a way to rent thier furnished properties within the law.
The Vegas Vacation Rental Association has announced their new website www.vegasvacationrentalhomes.com. This new site lists vacation homes around the Las Vegas valley that belong to VVRA members, offering a degree of confidence above and beyond the norm. The website offers beautiful listings of various homes and the ability to book reservations with owners directly.
In a stunning 4 to 3 vote, the Las Vegas City Council has voted to enact a new and draconian law that all but closes the doors on vacation rentals inside the city. Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian, who has literally stalked the vacation rental industry for the last 10 years or more, led the charge against everyone operating a vacation rental inside the city. The new law is largely based on emotion and anger and contains little sound logic at all, hence the draconian nature of the "legislation" passed. Lois called in her political favors to get the votes she needed, and in doing so, showed that she is more concerned with her own feelings more than actual facts. This seems a very popular trend in lawmaking lately. Legislating "personal beliefs" instead of sound logic and common sense.
Beginning July 1, 2017, Nevada medical cannabis vendors will begin selling marijuana to all Nevada residents and visitors over the age of 21. People who wish to do so will be able to visit select medical dispensaries in town and purchase up to an ounce of weed for recreational use. The hitch is that public consumption of against the law, and because marijuana use is still a federal crime, casinos will not likely allow smoking pot in their hotel rooms. This will leave visitors without an easy solution for consumption.
It hasn't always been the case that Las Vegas was a good destination for vacation renters. Not that homes haven't always been available to out of town renters for short term use. They have been available almost since Las Vegas became a destination in the first place. But today it's a whole new ballgame, so to speak. With AIRBnB and Homeaway making vacation home rentals a common thing, Las Vegas faces the reality of everyone imagining that their home is a good potential rental simply because it's in Las Vegas. But in truth, this is just not the case at all.
In Las Vegas there are so many ways to spend time and hard earned cash to enjoy one's self here as much as possible. Truly this is a place where activity and fun are top priorities. And of course this includes gambling and some naughty fun too. But probably for most of us it, there are many we might not think of at all. Where else in the world has so much been created and dedicated to nothing but having a good time. Of course there is a little business that goes on here from time to time. Whichever is the case, Las Vegas concierges are a valuable commodity here.
