Update on Vacation Rentals in Palm Springs

Palm Springs
Desert Sotheby's International Realty

UPDATE - City Council Votes Unanimously 4-0 in favor of new Short Term rental limits
The key changes are:

-Moratorium on new rental permit applications ends immediately

-Neighborhoods are capped at 20% saturation (although several neighborhoods will continue to exceed the cap for the foreseeable future, as existing licenses, as well as those submitted prior to the moratorium on October 17th are grandfathered)

-The number of times a home can be rented per year is reduced to 26 from 36 (effective immediately for new applicants, but not effective until Jan 1, 2026 for existing permit holders)

-Establishment of a new "junior permit" that allows up to six rentals per year, and is not subject to the 20% neighborhood cap
