Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Sage advice. The same words should be applied to landlords looking to make a buck off the housing crisis.
Take, for example, this daybed in Berkeley, which is in a shared room with two other people who are also sleeping near the floor, going on Airbnb for $880/month.
Which is still too much.
Granted, housing Stockholm Syndrome is rife around the Bay Area, so this might seem like a deal, but it’s not. Crashing on a sleeping pad next to two strangers on a carpeted floor should come with payment. Not the other way around.
But in a pinch, and port in a storm, right?
