Airbnb has helped me to pay for my home repairs that I needed as well as my future travel money. I am a first grade teacher and we all know that income is pretty small, so this has definitely helped to supplement my income. Airbnb is a trustworthy and safe and the messaging tools help hosts get to know the people they choose to share their space with. I have been in contact with great people from around the world. Airbnb is an important option for middle class families in America to earn extra money. Guests who stay in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in communities across the country. I give great suggestions for my guests to get out in the community.
