For those looking to unlock value in their homes, home-sharing service Airbnb offers an appealing reward: offsetting the cost of a vacation by renting out your own abode.
A Canadian family recently became all too acquainted with the risks of that proposition.
Star and Mark King recently returned to their Calgary home only to find the residence a wreck, after renting it on Airbnb to two adults who said they were in town for a wedding, CBC News reported. Soon after departing, the couple received text messages and calls from neighbors, who complained of a ruckus coming from the house.
A police officer who responded to noise complaints found a party under way at the Kings' home, according to CBC News. The officer estimated the property had suffered damages of at least $50,000.
Airbnb said the family would be reimbursed, and that it had banned the user who originally rented the house. The company is cooperating with authorities.
