In The Villages FL, seniors get assist from Airbnb

The new sharing economy is allowing homeowner seniors to utilize their extra space. With a strong seasonal influx of people during the winter months, officially known as "snowbirds", airbnb lets homeowners utilize this ebb and flow of people to supplement their retirement income. During the months of January through March, the influx of people is palpable with crowded town squares, a sea of golf carts, and limited parking.

Ann, a homeowner with a private room listed on Airbnb (listing: thevillagesairbnb.com - social media: airbnbthevillages.com ) is benefiting greatly from her Airbnb rental.  "The extra income allows me to travel during the off season and I don't mind having the extra company from time to time" says Ann.

With new construction skyrocketing in The Villages, and baby boomers stepping out of the work force, this trend is most likely to continue.
