The housing market has been on a roller coaster ride in recent years, and this year is shaping up to be even more volatile.
We saw a massive spike in the price of homes in 2017, but investors are looking for more of the same this year.
Airbnb is buying up rental properties across the country and is building a fleet of new homes that are already available for rent.
The investment in Airbnb is worth at least $500 billion, according to the investment arm of Fidelity Investments.
In 2016, Airbnb paid $6.4 billion in dividends.
This year, the company is paying more than $3 billion in cash dividends and another $2 billion in stock dividends.
The company has a valuation of more than five times its current market cap, according the New York Stock Exchange.
