You'll discover a bit about Chris' unique background and how it allows him to see the AirBnB arbitrage concept from multiple perspectives, revealing its all-too-real difficulties. 

You'll learn how so-called experts online have portrayed the concept as being an easy and lucrative way to make income by subletting through AirBnB.

You'll discover the limitations of AirBnB arbitrage, why it's restricted or even illegal in an increasing number of cities.
