    My older cousin is an actor on Broadway and she has lived in NYC in the same rent controlled apartment since the late 90s. The apartment lease is under her name, and she sublets to her roommates at a substantial profit (IDK if its market rate or just a lot more than the rent controlled rent she pays). It allows her to be financially stable in an industry that wouldnt allow her to otherwise be stable. That is not uncommon. What is uncommon is seeing the opportunity and scaling that as a business.

    Damn, her description of her energy company sounds like a conceptual match for her sublet grift. Basically wedging your way into other peopleís assets and taking a piece for yourself.

    Yeah, that was a bit scary to hear her bring that tone/concept to her pitch a decade ago and see what she's done now. But I guess that's here thing?

    I would imagine she got shut out of her previous academic and business worlds due to simply being sleazy.
    Her FB page was still up as of last night. We have 8 mutual Ďfriendsí in common, and every one of them is a Ďprofessionalí friend, guides, goods and services, etc. a little strange.

    Just out of curiosity - is this practice generally illegal with rent-controlled properties?

    I just actually watched to the end. Her description of the biz at the end was the cherry on the top. Mezzanine debt to pay the way into these energy savings agreements. She says the quiet part out loud.

    Why take cheap stereotypical shots on the renters, the fake landlord is the shitbag here. I'd bet the renters are mostly trustfunders (one was a bartender/river guide expecting a luxury rental is a red flag) or remote workers making tons of money who don't ski every day because they work a lot, since there was talk about laptops and working in the shared space.

    no idea. She might be giving the LL a kickback too? Whats funny is that all the original roommates on the lease from the 90s are still probably on the current lease, as that is the one that keeps getting renewed to keep the rent control in place. haha.

    Oh the fake landlord is a total shitbag, pretty clear her entire existence is built on being a grifter.

    But beyond that Iím trying to rationalize paying $4000 a month for a bedroom?

    Is the skiing in Jackson Hole really that much better than other places?

    Been to the place a couple times, never skied there. Never been that impressed by it. Maybe Iím missing something and if I ski there Iíll have an existential crisis that drives me to live in a closet.

    It might require signing up to read, but no pay, I would cut and paste but its relatively long.
    lol I know that chick. One of my friends friends was hooking up with her and she ended up on the snowmobile trip in Yellowstone when they pulled a lottery permit. Rode in a car with her for 10 hours. She definitely had an interesting perspective and there were jokes about how many people she had renting that place. I think it was like 5 back then. She basically said the rent on the place was her primary source of income and she was semi retired.

    Edit, Just realized this was a different house from what she lived in before. She said she bought the other house she was leasing out at the time. Sounds like she leased this one and tried to do the same thing. My friend said she still has the other house and it is fully rented to individuals or couples in each bedroom.

    NYC rent control is an odd beast. Had a buddy from college that scored a rent controlled apartment in the mid-90ís. A few years ago he negotiated with the owner to give it up. He got every penny he ever paid in rent for 25 years plus a couple hundred thousand to walk away.

    I think you have to request permission to sublet along with many details to controlling entity and there is a cap on the sublet amount.

    Point is, itís transparent and all parties and terms are accounted for.

    So you've never been that impressed by a ski area you've never skied?

    Yeah - I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you're missing something...

    There are a couple of myths about Jackson. One, that everyone is rich, and two, that everyone skis. It’s not true, far more people don’t ski here than do, in my observations.
    As far as a guide ‘expecting’ a luxury rental, well, it’s more a matter of ANY rental, TBH.
    It’s not like there are any vacancies anywhere for much less, even in Teton Valley or Hoback. Possibly in Alpine?
    (Especially if you haven’t lived here forever, that changes opportunities a little, but not by much).

    Iím sure the skiing is great. Itís definitely one of the rowdiest and cool places to ski in North America, no doubt.

    Iím talking about the full package of living there from a services/quality of life/access to things/climate and weather/not living with a bunch of rad bros and tourists.

    Heh. That's a can of worms.

    But the skiing is great... when the skiing is great.

    All Iím saying is I was a remote worker wanting to spend $4k a month on bedroom - and itís all about the skiing Iíd be eyeballing somewhere in Europe or maybe somewhere interior BC, not Jackson.

    What if you have to stay in the US? Genuinely curious, not trolling.

    Heh - I'm almost CERTAIN that staying in Europe would be WAY cheaper than Jackson.

    And nobody is likely to argue with your point above.

    If *I* was in this situation, I'd probably head for Taos and then PRAY to the almighty FSM that it snowed.
