airbnb Wants to Work With Landlords to Open Up Multi-family Buildings

Airbnb partners with multifamily owners for home sharing

From the San Diego Source, August 20, 2015

Airbnb is partnering with some of North America’s largest REITs on a pilot program encouraging developers to embrace the home-sharing platform within multifamily projects.

The landlord partnership model is a shift in strategies for Airbnb, the San Francisco-based private company founded in 2008 that has traditionally allowed hosts to list couches, bedrooms or entire houses on its website for travelers to rent.
