We used airbnb to rent out the sofabed in our living room for a few days around the last inauguration to two European girls who were travelling during their gap year. I don’t remember if they had planned to come to DC for the inauguration or if the timing just worked out for them. I think that using a short-term rental service put both sides at ease. We got a fair price given that we were offering only a sofabed and shared bathroom in an apartment near the Courthouse Metro station. I seem to recall that most people’s dreams of charging a lot to rent out their places didn’t come true last time, but I can’t say for sure.
