The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
We decided to use airbnb to be able to afford small vacations with our family. With the economy and barely making enough money to pay our mortgage we thought this would at least give us some quality vacation time together as a family. We have had a wonderfuly experience with trustworthy and communicative renters. We feel so fortunate to be able to share our home and travel with our young children so they can experience other parts of the world. As with any business, the extra time and effort and care we put into making our guests feel welcome really pays off.
