Do Owners in a Consumer-To-Consumer Market Ever Prefer Renting to Less-Engaged Users?

We find that owners in consumer-to-consumer rentals prefer users who engage with their product less (vs. more) and attribute the effect to a concern for wear-and-tear minimization in contrast to enjoyment maximization. This effect is more pronounced for attached owners who are not placated by financial risk mitigation tactics.
