The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
After having to leave my home due to a forced job move, Airbnb allowed me to keep my house in my home town. I plan to return there some day soon, but I could not have afforded to keep the property without Airbnb. I rented through a realtor for a while, but it was too expensive and not personal. Through Airbnb I feel like people can share my home and enjoy it like I do. This is the highest and best use of the real estate. I also enjoy the personal connection. Thank you, Airbnb for helping me keep my home and my connection with my home town!
