B & B establishments have certainly made a huge difference for many homeowners, and the Airbnb industry is becoming increasingly popular with those that are willing to share a room, a home, cottage or similar while they make use of storage units.
With the explosive success of Airbnb, the property investment landscape is fast changing. An increasing number of property owners are discovering that it is extremely lucrative to rent out a property by the night than to install a more long-term tenant.
You can always change your mind should you prefer a more standard arrangement with a long-term tenant that will bring in regular money, so don’t get rid of the basics such as fridges, washing machines, and beds, should you decide to go back to the Airbnb option.
The landscape of earning money is changing rapidly; if you are keen to rent out a room, cottage or home to earn extra income, you will be pleasantly surprised at how much extra income you can earn by sharing your space.
