Sometimes the best option to increase your income may be right in front of you. Do you know how to earn money with your home? The gig economy makes it super easy to add some extra income by renting out parts of your home. Rent anything from your spare bedroom to day use of your pool and you may find that you can nicely supplement your income.
Sometimes increasing your income means finding ways to work more and sometimes it can mean using what you already have. Your home can be a great source of income if you are willing to be a bit creative.
Renting your home on Airbnb is probably one of the first things that may come to mind, but have you considered renting only a portion of your home? Renting your entire home may not be practical but you can rent a single room, convert a garage into a great little suite, or rent your basement. Get creative and you may be able to create a steady side income.
Do you have a pool in your yard? Why not rent it out for the day and earn some extra income? Swimply connects pool owners with swimmers who want to enjoy a private pool for the day. Sign up here and get a $5 credit just for signing up.
Do you have a spare room or even a section of your garage that isn’t being used? Maybe you have space for someone to part a boat or a trailer. Rent it out for someone to use as storage. You will need to provide access to the space on an occasional basis but this is a great side gig with a very limited time commitment. They maintain an insurance policy to back both you and the renter up so there’s very little worry with this side gig.
Joyspace lets you rent out fun spaces in your home like a home gym, tennis court, and more. This service has not quite launched yet but you can add your space to it and join the waiting list now.
Rent your RV
Do you have an RV? Chances are it is sitting unused most of the time. Consider renting out your RV with Outdoorsy. Many people end up covering their own cost of the RV by renting it out. This can be a great little side gig income, especially if you live in an area with a lot of outdoor activities.
Do you have a truly unique living space? Film and commercial producers are always looking for great locations to use for projects. Rent out your space to use for filling projects with Set Scouter.
