Many people earn passive income by renting out apartments, condos and houses. Of course you’ll need to acquire rental properties first. Be sure to set your rents high enough to provide a profit while covering your maintenance costs. As a landlord, you may need to clean your dwellings and make minor repairs between tenants. For many people, profits far outweigh the demands, however. Strive to find reliable tenants who pay their rent on time and do no damage.

If you want to make money part-time from your existing home, check out Airbnb, VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) and Homestay and read: “15 Steps to Profit By Renting Your Home to Visitors.”
