I really have enjoyed my time with AirBnb. It's really helped to provide me with a resource that allows me to not only meet people from around the world and put a good face on Baltimore, it has helped me make ends meet. I own a condo that is vacant because the neighborhood's economy is still depressed and this has helped me offsite the cost of my underwater mortgage (as I am ineligible for HARP and other programs). I now don't have to worry so much about the risk of foreclosure as much.
