A COUPLE are making an extra £1,500 a month by renting out space in their home.
Sue and David Black, from Barnet, London, have made around £15,000 since they started their lucrative operation in December 2021 using Peerspace.
The space rental market allows people to rent out space in their homes for meeting rooms, event venues and filming locations, etc.
Combining David’s design skills and Sue’s knack for real estate spaces, the couple’s home is now a popular choice among pranksters.
“I can say with Peerspace alone, we’ve made around £15,000 since December 2021,” Sue told the Express.
“Certainly we could have made more money with the discount but we are pleased with the increased bookings.
“Initially, I thought it would be great to use the extra money for our holiday fund but recently it has really helped with our heating costs!”
With soaring electricity and gas bills crippling Britons across the country, Sue explains the benefits of earning a few extra pounds without leaving home.
Sue continued: “It’s great to know that my house can generate income instead of consuming it!
“I can adjust my rates so that I can manage the frequency of bookings without becoming a chore because I don’t want to be tied to the house all the time and you have to be onsite when the booking comes in.
“However, if I really need more cash, I know that I can lower the price and get more profit, which is good to know.”
But the couple’s savvy business move is not without problems, with the couple seeing litter and noise as the two main issues.
It is, however, a rare occurrence.
“Apart from that, we didn’t have any real problems with the scenes themselves,” she said.
It comes after a woman revealed how she earns £80,000 a year with her simple job – and only working a few hours a week.
The Sun Online also reported on how a 23-year-old earns £300,000 a month from her unique business venture – after catching the idea at her parents’ home during the pandemic.
