Unless you've been living in a cave, you've probably heard about regulations that towns are putting on Short Term Rentals (STRs). Since we live in a community of 34+ municipalities all of them having different regulations, restrictions, permits, etc., it can become a confusing mess!

Investors are not known to favor regulations of any kind, but when it affects their livelihood, they can get a little cranky. Add to the mix Realtors' opinions about home owner rights and you've got yourself a conversation. Recently, Senate Bill 197 which would prohibit municipalities from restricting STRs has been introduced. Already passed by the Senate, it is scheduled for a House vote this week. We've brought you a great panel of active participants and expect a lively discussion on:

  • What does Senate Bill 197 say
  • How it all came about
  • What is reasonable and fair
  • Who is involved
  • How can you get involved

Larry Kelly is a seasoned investor, real estate broker, contractor, landlord, property manager and one of REI NWA's most valued resource. He's negotiated everything from residential/commercial sales to leases, evictions and keeping tenants in place. Larry has good stuff we want to hear.

Staci R. Lamb is a highly skilled short-term rental consultant and property manager based in Northwest Arkansas. She is a strong advocate for the short-term rental community in Arkansas and works closely with Airbnb to bring hosts together across the state as the Arkansas Airbnb Community Leader.

Bill Jones is the President of the Arkansas Landlord Association. An investor with a background in construction, a passion for fair and reasonable laws and regulations, he is an ideal person to further the discussion. Bill sees both sides of the issue and is eager to help us sort things out. 

We love to hear from new people as well as our members.

Let us know what's on your mind or what you'd like to see at REI NWA.
