The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
It's super expensive where we live and by renting out our house on the weekends we are out of town, we earn a bit of money which helps us maintain our property. It also helps keep the house watched. We were robbed a few months ago in broad daylight so it's nice to know people are coming and going. Our guests have also helped us care for our backyard chickens when we are away. Overall, it's been a win win for everyone.
