Airbnb is an important option for individuals that have the extra space in there homes and they choose to share it in Airbnb. I am a single female, I'm living in a fixed income, I recently became a host sharing the extra space in my house and the extra money I'm collecting supplements my income and make it possible for me to pay my mortgage and other bills. Airbnb have a great verification and messaging system and I believe is safe, also the guests who stay in Airbnb listings generate sustainable, local economic activity that supports the small businesses in communities across the country. I am very comfortable sharing my extra space in Airbnb.
