The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I travel a lot and to leave my apartment empty for 2 or 3 months at the time it is very expensive and unfiseable. I can only travel and come back to my home because I sublet on airbnb. It is safe and I know I will get paid and there for afford all the bills and taxes for the apartment and still have some money to spend. Most of my guests are young people, students doing internship or medical students on rotation. Those people could never afford staying at a hotel for a month or 2.So, it is important to understand how important is for the guest who need an affordable temporary place to stay. Craigs list has been used to sublet vacation rent for years, but airbnb is a safer away to do it.
