We believe that AirBnB tremendously helps local economy, is safe, is well organized, brings tourism to Malden and helps a lot home owners and renters to supplement their income which is also spent locally. AirBnB helps economically and culturally the city of Malden. As hosts we want to help each other and help the community see our point of view. AirBnB has helped me tremendously through allowing me to pay for my mortgage when I had lost my job. Without AirBnB I would have had to sell my house I care so much about.
