Your home is a gold mine. Not literally of course, but you can make a ton of money out of it with just a few of the right moves. After all, real estate is in high demand, and all you need to do is rise to meet that demand with a spare room or a bit of outdoor space of your own. Check out the points below if you’re looking to make some extra money this year, and you’ve got plenty of room left in your property to do so.

Rent the Space Around Your House

If you’ve got a parking space in front of your house, or backyard space you’re not really using, you can rent them both out for a bit of cash. Do so during peak times of year, such as concert and festival periods as well as the summertime – people will pay big bucks for the privilege of staying close to a venue without the premium price tag!

Bring in Tenants

Have you got a spare room? Then it’s an idea to rent it out. Of course, you could always try buying to let, if you’ve got some funds in the bank to do that. But if you’ve just got a bit of space, use it to full effect.

You can bring in both temporary and long term tenants here. The former could be those on vacation who need a place to stay for a week, and the latter college students that will be low on funds for the next 3 years. This is a good source of income for padding out your account; you could very easily form an emergency fund with weekly rent!

Think About Selling Your Property

If you’ve been thinking about selling your home for a little while, but never gave it serious thought, maybe this is the perfect time to take the plunge? Pick your moment just right and you could sell my house fast and be off the market within a matter of weeks.

And selling your property is the best way to get a big chunk of money in the bank. It’s not a source of renewable income, but it does allow you to start afresh, as well as squeeze some extra value out of your four walls. You could get at least 20% on top of the original sale price with a few quick renovations!

Start Up a Home Business

Running a business from home practically eliminates overheads, which makes it a very viable option for making money. You just need some spare space, a good internet connection, and a hardy business idea.

And a home business can expand very rapidly. Think about it: you don’t have to commute, and you can spend as many hours as you like at your desk, meaning you’ve got twice the amount of time to grow compared to office-based entrepreneurs.

If you want to make money out of your home, these are the best ways to do so.
