In Marseille, problems for seasonal renters.
Left without regulation for many years, the Airbnb rental sector has exploded in Marseille, at the expense of housing familial.La City begins to grasp the problem.
“Apartments disappear from the circuit of classic family housing when we have a huge need for them in Marseille. There are also buyouts of large housing to transform them into a studio, which is terrible, because it creates a real lack”, regrets the elected official of the city Patrick Amico.
If the city center is particularly affected, it is the whole of Marseille that is affected by the phenomenon, especially the coastline where Airbnbs abound.
“This fuels a totally unreasonable land market, where people who need housing can no longer afford it,” laments Patrick Amico.
