I had to relocate to AK, but not forever! I needed to keep my house in MA, as I would never be able to afford to buy again. Having my house on Airbnb helps me pay the mortgage, my rentin AK, insurance in MA ans AK and medical bills, having airbnb just helps make ends meet. i have stayed at AIRBNB in the past, Airbnb's trust and safety screening helps me feels safe and trusted. Airbnb is an important option for middle class families in America to earn extra money.AND a way for middle class familys to have travel options! my guests and me who have stayed in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in communities across the country. Airbnb teaches us small business!!!!! helps us support our towns!
