AirBnB in Dutch News

The largest most reputable Dutch television news provider is undoubtedly NOS, which is why I use them as a milestone on my adoption curve. AirBnB has officially reached the crossroads between Early Majority and Late Majority in the Netherlands.

From the article: So far Amsterdammers have earned € 13 million through the site. Visitors can choose from more than 2300 places in the city overnight, which is an increase of 600 percent in one year.

Naturally as there is rent protection the Amsterdam the foundations who own the buildings are less happy with the increase: We rent houses at a low price in order to keep social rents down, and we think it is inappropriate that people earn money in this way.

We’ll see what happens…

Geen hotel, maar bij mensen thuis
