My wife and I are in are 70's getting along on limited income. Besides SS our only other income comes from our ability to rent space in our house. Airbnb has allowed us to be exposed to a clientele which we couldn't resource ourselves. I think they and similar businesses provide a much needed service that helps people like ourselves get by.
