Booking.com is Beating Airbnb in Home Stays

If you’re planning your next vacation and you’re feeling stuck, you’ll want to know about this article. We’re all pretty familiar with sites like AirBnB, and many of us have been enthralled by the crazy growth that the market has seen. What used to be an assumption that travel meant working with a travel agent and checking into a hotel has evolved into a completely different model. Now you can stay at the home of someone halfway around the world, and for a much lower price. But when one company does something very well, many others want to jump on the bandwagon and imitate. That’s why this article is so interesting. Of all sites, booking.com is beginning to far outpace AirBnB and other companies. According to this article, “Since 2007, 748 million guests have stayed at homes, apartments, or unique listings like yurts and igloos listed on Booking.com, according to its parent company, Booking Holdings. During that same time period, Airbnb says 500 million guests have stayed at one of its listings.” Check out this link for more information.

Selling the Family Home: Helping Seniors Navigate the Market and the Move

If you’re working through where your more elderly relatives are going to live next, you’ll want to know about this article. We love and care for our families at every age and want to ensure that that they’re set up for success no matter what. Aging relatives have different needs and frequently that means that the homes that they’ve grown up in and made so many different memories in, are no longer adequate. Selling your home is stressful already, but when you have specific needs, it takes on a new level of challenges. First and foremost, there are the emotions associated. You’ve spent a ton of time in this place, and respect deserves to be paid. While this article touches on that, it really focuses on the logistics associated with navigating the market in this day and age. Tips include not being in a huge rush to sell and including your family members for support wherever possible. Don’t feel badly – they’ll be willing to lend a helping hand. According to this article, “It’s never a bad thing to have more than one or two sets of ears listening to important information that will affect your financial future. Consider inviting your adult children, someone whose judgment you trust, and in some cases your power of attorney to take part in discussions about the sale of your home. It can help bring you more peace of mind about your decisions.” Check out this link for more information.
