Chicago Illinois

Across Chicago, from Austin to Logan Square and Hyde Park, hosts are using Airbnb to make extra income to help pay their rents or mortgages and stay in their homes. In 2016 alone, these hosts helped generate $331 million in economic activity for local neighborhoods and small businesses.

With new, clear home sharing regulations recently passed, Chicago is leading the effort in leveraging the sharing economy to create opportunities for regular people. As home sharing grows and flourishes in Chicago, we look forward to continuing our partnership with the city and our community to drive economic activity, protect the quality of life, and support the thousands of regular Chicagoans who depend on home sharing to make ends meet.
