It’s one of the great frustrations in life – people with money often have no time and people with time frequently have no money. This opportunity brings the two together. Wealthy investors interested in property often have limited time to search out deals. Plenty of people with the reverse dilemma make a great deal of cash simply by sourcing suitable properties for wealthy investors who are pushed for time.
You can find properties below market value by avoiding estate agents and instead advertising in your area, offering to buy houses. When the offers come in, approach investors offering to pass on the details of bargain properties in exchange for a percentage of the sale value.
Most towns and cities will have monthly networking events for landlords and property investors or you could use networking sites such as Twitter and LinkedIn to find your buyers. Despite this method requiring a substantial time commitment, once you have accumulated a bank of investors it can prove to be very lucrative in the long run.
If you love asking questions and have a large chunk of spare time on your hands, you could earn £185 weekly with travelling costs covered. There are companies listed on the website NatCen, which will ask you to carry out interviews for them and pay for your time. Being nosey has never been so lucrative!
One of the best definitions of success is to get paid for doing something you enjoy. With that in mind, I was interested to read about websites Slicethepie, that allows you to turn your passion for music into a money making opportunity by reviewing unsigned bands and artists online. Users with good reputations on the site can earn up to £40 monthly – which is pretty good money for doing something as easy and enjoyable as listening to music for love.
With technology advancing so rapidly these days, you’re bound to have old mobile phones lying around your house that are of no use to you. You can get some good money and help the environment by recycling mobile phones with companies such as Mobile Cash Mate.
Be aware that you many not receive the amount of cash quoted by such websites, depending on you phone’s condition. But if your old phone is simply taking up drawer space, anything is better than nothing.
If you’ve recently been a student, or you have a child or grandchild that has, you may have some untapped gold at your fingertips. Those old revision notes weren’t just useful for passing your exams, they can also be used to generate extra cash.
Upload your notes along with your asking price to sites such as Notesale, to get paid by other students following in your footsteps. Not a fortune maker, but why not cash in on what you already own but no longer need?
