There should be a way or a process for OD to verify that people are still renting. I have heard from many renters and OD owners that they have to send 10+ messages before someone gets a response. By verifying if a listing is still active that helps OD by allowing renters to get in contact with someone that is renting right away - many may not take the time to message a dozen people. Something like if you haven’t logged in for X amount of time or have X amount of messages that you haven’t responded to, or haven’t had a booking in X time. Many times the listings that I see that aren’t really active are the lower priced ones so by eliminating these it also helps with unrealistic expectations by the renter.
