Airbnb | Mission United

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

 

Airbnb is one of the biggest players in today's gig economy, allowing people to feel at home even when they're on vacation. It's a great way to make money too: Virginia's Airbnb hosts earned more than $41 million in 2016. One drawback is that many homeowners are listing their places on Airbnb without realizing that it violates their association agreements. We'll examine the legal and economic challenges facing the Airbnb system.  And later, Mission United provides support and relief to the Hampton Roads military community. We'll talk about what resources are available today at 12.
