The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb saved my home from going into foreclosure after my divorce. I use Airbnb to find stable renters (generally travel nurses) looking for a 3-9 month rental. This is a safer option than Craigslist or taking out an ad. There has been no impact on my neighborhood, the nurses enjoy having a home rather than a hotel to stay in and I get to keep my house.
