Although a lot of people don’t realise it, there are actually a lot of easy ways you can make money from the property you already own. Whether you’re renting out a room or selling storage space, you can use the space you’re not using to make a little bit of extra money alongside your 9-5. Whilst it can be difficult to get started, the rewards are definitely worth it! With that in mind, here are 4 easy ways to make money from your property:
– Rent Out A Room To A Tenant
If you have a spare room and you want to use it to its full potential, renting it out to a tenant could be your best option. Whilst you won’t be able to charge them a premium for renting one room with shared facilities, you will be able to charge them a price that will help cover your mortgage costs.
If you are going to rent your room to a tenant you need to think about whether or not this cost is going to include bills, and whether or not you’re going to charge them on a weekly or monthly basis.

– List Your Spare Room On Airbnb
Another great way to use your spare room to earn a little extra income is to list it on Airbnb. Although you can’t guarantee you’re always going to have guests, you have the potential to a lot more than you would if you were to rent it out to a tenant that stays all month. Not only that, but you can block out the days in which you don’t want to have any guests.
If you think you would struggle when it comes to managing an Airbnb account, you might want to consider handing the reigns over to someone else. For most, they prefer to hire an Airbnb agent.
– Run A Bed And Breakfast
Again, if you don’t want to have a tenant in your house at all times, turning your spare room(s) into a B&B could be a great alternative route to take. Ideal for those that live in a town that is frequented by tourists, a Bed and Breakfast could be the perfect way to make an income out of your home.
– Sell Storage Space
Finally, if you don’t want to have any guests in your home but you want to to use it to make money, you could always consider offering storage space. Although this means you will need to have a large dedicated room to do so, those that have large properties may find it a great way to earn a little extra income.
