Ulster County Comptroller, March Gallagher, released a snapshot report on the impact of the short-term rental market on Ulster County. The analysis compares Ulster County to other surrounding counties and finds that 3% of all housing units in the county were being offered as short-term rentals through platforms such as Airbnb as of the end of June 2022. The Emergency Tenant Protection Act defines less than 5% vacancy as a housing emergency. The only county more heavily impacted by short-term rentals is Greene County.
