Peer-to-Peer Renting: Embrace the Adventure

There’s a new shift in today’s rental market. It’s a new culture based on peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing.

A ‘sharing economy’ or ‘collaborative consumption’ is a popular economic model that is transforming the rental market.

  • Renters save money; owners make money; and properties beat standard hotels and rental agency locations.
  • It’s the same economic principle based on Uber.
  • The peer-to-peer rental market is valued at around $26 billion.

It all began with Couchsurfing.

  • HomeAway: 2005
  • Rent Like a Champion: 2006
