If you are stuck for money even with your full time job and you are looking for a way to find some extra money, you might be able to earn quite a bit extra by simply putting one of your extra rooms on rent. You might have a room that you are currently using as a store room or even a garage that can be converted in to a comfortable little room with a bathroom that you can give out on rent. If you do not have a bathroom attached to the room, you will need to build one because many guests will not like the idea of having to share a bathroom with you.
We live in an area where many travellers are looking for budget accommodation and there are websites like airbnb that allow people to rent out their perfect rooms for travellers looking for short term lodgings will be put in touch with those looking to rent out their rooms.
Renovating the room
If the store room or garage is messy, unpainted and disarranged, you will have to invest a little money in getting it cleaned, repainted and potentially redesigned so that it will be suitable to rent out to someone. You can even have a hostel style room with bunk bed that can even accommodate a group of people travelling together who will appreciate the opportunity to having to only pay for one room where you will be able to charge a higher rate for the room as opposed to a room that accommodates two people.
You will need to provide your guests with a simple breakfast every morning but you can include the cost of that in the room charge as well. You will need to keep the room clean, neat and tidy at all times and you will need to wash all of the bed linen every time the room is vacated. All of this needs to be included in the room charge as your costs. You might even be able to give your guests additional benefits such as a tour around the town or a tour to interesting places to see in and around your town for a slightly extra charge. When your business gets to a point where you are confident that you can handle it, you can even start advertising the room online on social media and other platforms until you are fully booked throughout the year. At some point, you might even be able to expand your business by building an extra room and renting that out too until you have a fully-fledged guest house one day.
