I was curious to find out if any Katonah neighbors had signed up for this app. Sure enough some area residents are putting their homes up for monthly rentals and sublets.
Here is the link.
BTW the service offers a $50,000 insurance policy for property damage from Aribnb guests.
What do you think of this idea of renting your home out to others?

SnapGoods is one of the latest start-ups that bases its business model around allowing people to share, exchange and rent goods in a local setting. Among others are NeighborGoods and ShareSomeSugar.
The common thread of all these sites is that access trumps ownership; consumers are offered ways to share goods instead of having to buy them.
Instead of laying out $500+ for an ipad, through one of these sites, you could rent one for a lot less
For a better understanding of this business model, check out:

Let’s say you need to assemble a piece of IKEA furniture. You dislike doing it so much that you would be willing to pay somebody $50 to put it together for you. Perhaps one of your neighbors is an unemployed carpenter who would take the offer. But how are you going to find him?
This is the basic problem Zaarly tries to solve.

My son's flat roof over a storage area collapse last Friday because of the snow. Luckily a neighbor of ours is a roofer (he says he has been very busy of late) and was able to clear the snow off the main house.
If you have a pitched roof snow buildup is less of an issue. You can use a so-called “roof rake” to remove snow, one small section at a time. That’s if you can find one. Area Home Depots and many other hardware stores are sold out, so many are improvising with shovels.
