Some of us are lucky enough to have some spare space at or around home –
it could turn into a nice little earner.
SpaceOut was featured in one of the cover articles from the September 2010 edition of Money Magazine – An Extra $200 a month renting out spare space.
“Almost everyone has unused space around their home,apartment, or business – whether that’s your garage, your parking spot, your shed, a spare room or even your fridge – you’ll find there is someone out there willing to pay you to use it.”
Private rentals are increasingly becoming recognised as real alternatives to traditional self-storage facilities – and are often much more convenient, and significantly cheaper as well. Using online services such as www. SpaceOut.com.au, ordinary Australians can lease out their excess or unused space privately and make a little extra cash on the side.
“Many of us have got a spare bedroom or shed. More often than not it’s half-filled with our own junk, Why not do a reshuffle and rent it out?”
Private storage suits all types of people – particularly retirees and “empty nesters”, who wouldn’t dream of getting in a tenant (and sharing their house and lives with someone), but are very happy to store someones furniture in the spare room for a few months or more while the person is off travelling.
“Typically you are looking at between $100 and $200 a month for doing little more than putting stuff in a room and shutting the door”
