Thanks to airbnb, I am able to retire in June and still pay my mortage. I am 63 years old and divorced. In order to keep my home of 30 years, I needed additional income. Renting out part of my house has been perfect. I appreciate the process people have to go through to access the listings. I feel secure in renting to individuals through this site. Their management tools help me track my income and provide information about marketing. Great way to sustain small business opportunities for individuals like myself who are seniors in the middle class.
