Beyond AirBnb: 4 Simple Property Side Hustles That Will Blow Your Mind
August 10, 2022
Everyone has heard of AirBnb or Vrbo by now (but just in case: these are websites where a person can list a house, condo or apartment for short-term rent). People use these sites to bring in some extra cash with property that isn’t their main residential property. But did you know that there are other, similar sites that allow you to use property as a side hustle? Property that goes beyond a home? Let’s say…a pool or a tennis court? We’ve investigated some of the sites we’ve heard about and detail summaries below in case you’re looking for ways to increase income in this new $5+ per gallon of gas economy. Check them out:
With the tagline “Turn the space you already have into cash”, Neighbor connects people looking for storage space with people who have space to spare. Searchable options include RV storage, car and truck storage, trailer storage and boat storage. Additional options are business inventory and warehouse storage, as well as college and general indoor storage.
Those looking for storage can search by location or type of storage desired. Hosts can sign up for the platform if they have a spare garage, driveway, shed or even a basement they aren’t using that they can rent out. Hosts are protected by a “Payout Protection” plan which is the list of official rules for the platform, including guaranteed payments and refund policy. VIsit www.neighbor.com for more info.
