On the rent trade board here there was a recent question concerning needing a studio for sure and possibly a two bedroom if more people join. This is part of the response from the renter: I think this is pretty ridiculous. Someone is going to tie up a room, knowing it won't be used, just to get $11 per point. I really wish there was a way to end renting for profit. I would definitely support a rule only allowing points to be rented for dues.
