Airbnb Now an Option for Renters in 25-Plus Cities

The Raleigh News and Observer is reporting that as as inflation soars, cash-strapped renters may have a new option to cover rising costs of living: Airbnb. The short-term rental platform has rolled out its new “Airbnb-friendly” apartment program across 25-plus cities, including Raleigh and Durham. For tenants whose landlords agree to participate, it allows them to rent out a spare room, or even their entire apartment, while they’re away. Based on Airbnb’s estimates, tenants could earn on average $878 for a week. That’s after paying the Airbnb Host service fee and the property management firm’s cut. Photo credit: News &Observer
