According to reports from the Wall Street Journal, Airbnb is close to raising $1 billion in financing that values that short-term vacation rental company at $24 billion.When it last raised money in 2014, a $450 million investment valued the company at $10 billion, so more than doubling the size of the valuation in just over a year is a significant accomplishment.
