1) Rent Space In Your Home or Apartment To Vacationers
Maybe you are going on a vacation or plan to visit family for the weekend. Perhaps you have an unused guest room in your home. Why not get paid for that unused space by renting it out? Three of the biggest and most lucrative vacation rental income platforms are AirBnB, Flipkey, and VRBO (which stands for Vacation Rental By Owner and has actually been around since 1995). VRBO is now part of Homeaway, which is another site where you can list your home or rooms to those seeking a short-term vacation rental getaway. Those who have a spare room in their home can become hosts to people searching for a unique place to stay in a specific city or town. The hosts rent out rooms (or their whole house) to guests from around the country or even the world. Many people who do this hosting make enough money to offset or even completely pay their rent or mortgage. Keep in mind that if you rent your apartment, you may need the permission of your landlord to use these services.
