In Texas, Airbnb is an important economic tool for residents who share their homes to earn extra money. New data shows supplemental income from home sharing is more important than ever as people continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, navigate economic uncertainty, and cover the rising costs of living.
The majority of Texas Hosts — approximately 77 percent1 — share just one home, and by welcoming guests who spend money at small businesses, restaurants, and cafes, Hosts across Texas also help support their local economies.
