Hi, Airbnb helped us survive as we were trying to sell our cottage, and the market was not moving. The small percentage of rentals that we did have helped to pay the real estate taxes and the carrying costs. We are still waiting for the housing market to recover. Hopefully this will be the year! Also, when I was visiting my son in college, in Canada, all the hotels were completely booked. Airbnb saved me again, by guest sharing, so that I had a place to sleep.
