VRBO or AIRBNB – Easy Ways to make Big Money, Right???

By Diana Hill

Having been a real estate investor and educator for going on thirty years (yes, I really did just admit that), I’ve seen a lot of trends and fads. There is a big difference between a fad and a trend.

Whereas a trend is defined as: To take a particular direction; extend in some direction indicated. So, one is fleeting and the other is a change in direction.
