With over a million properties in most cities in the world, Airbnb.com is probably the largest rental site out there. It offers everything from a couch in someone's apartment to an entire castle or yacht. Most of the properties on Airbnb are people's homes, which they rent out to earn extra money.
It's 100% free to list your property, but Airbnb charge a 3% transaction fee per booking. By signing up you're not obligated to rent out, you can block your calender and rent out whenever you like.
Though property damage is rare, the Airbnb host guarantee will reimburse eligible hosts for damages up to $1,000,000, making it viritually risk free to rent out.
