I'm awfully curious whether the County of Maui's targeted shutdown of many Northshore rental opportunities has worked to increase the cost of the remaining legal rentals, particularly those on the Northshore. Supply and demand has always been a very strong force that readily affects pricing.
I wonder if anyone has studied this and has some enlightening data to share. Maybe our enterprising county official that posted above fishing for rats would like to tackle this issue. Then again, maybe he has something extra to gain here playing the cop and he would just prefer to look the other way.
