Do you see more and more people who become host on Airbnb and you are wondering why they are doing it?

Are you thinking that you might want to try to host and would like to know if some people are doing it for the same reasons as yours?

I won’t lie here, we started hosting on Airbnb because we were not in the best situation financially and we needed money.

Hosting on Airbnb enabled us to do much more than just paying our bills at the end of the month! Now, we can travel as much as we want and meet people from everywhere in the world.

To write this post, I did a short survey among Airbnb Hosts and the results surprised me! Especially the last one!!
