With the economic down turn and very little job opportunity in our area, airbnb helped me keep a fairly steady stream of income coming into our home. Their platform is great and offers a safe, two sided conversation with possible renters. Airbnb also takes the power of large corporations and gives it back to the average American. with no upfront fees and no major charges we can control our own destiny.
