The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have been using airbnb to rent my condo which is in a vacation resort. I like airbnb because it is a safe site; I can always call if I need help with any aspect of the site or rental; i feel protected regarding the rental fee as it all goes through airbnb. The rental I receive pays for the homeowner and recreational feel which we are charged. I do not live in this condo so it is strictly a rental. I keep the rent fair so that guest can afford it as this is a 'high rent' area. I have encountered many wonderful folks through this process - not only when i have hosted, but also when i have been the guest. I would not use any other organization in terms of being a guest or hosting.
