Over the last several years, there has been a great deal of discussion and notoriety about people making their homes available for short-term vacation rentals and possible home sharing situations. Originally conceived in San Francisco, Airbnb became incredibly popular. First, visiting university professors would make their homes available for short-term rentals whlle they were on sabbaticals or traveling to another university as a “guest professor.” In time, these vacation rental platforms became more popular than conventional motels and hotels. Home away became even more popular.
