The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am an expat who used to rent my house while away but had to return earlier as my U.S. Based employer terminated my contract a year earlier. Hence Since I had a year long rent contract commitment I couldn't get in. That caused me huge financial lose to rent another house and have to move furniture twice and couldn't find employment for 6 month Wuxi h caused more financial burden. Now I found again a job and back an expat and renting my house vi Airbnb which allows me to control short term rental and not having to store my furniture. I am also employing a Disabled person to take care of the gardening and the house maintenance as well as another property manager and a cleaning company that comes to to clean either monthly or bi weekly.
