I feel like y'all could have talked more about the surge in home pricing, and the demographics of ownership. Less than 10% of all airbnbs in the quarter were owned by people who lived in the city. Wealth was generated, but not for locals. They were treating this place like a third world vacation spot. And 6-13% ? thats a complete lie. The FQ bubble in some places was up 40%, essentially making it unaffordable for locals. y'all didn't even mention the gentrification. Shame. y'all messed this one up.
