Wondering how to make money from home? Online marketplaces have opened the door wide open when it comes to ways to make money from home. Overnight stays, where you let guests rent out your home (or part of it) to spend a night, are one option. Other options are becoming a host on space-rental platforms like Peerspace, Splacer and Viewnary. The first two are almost identical concepts, but Viewnary is novel and unique. Let’s take a look at the 3 main advantages that hosting on Viewnary has over Peerspace and Splacer.
If you look up “Peerspace Los Angeles” or “Splacer New York”, you’ll notice that their listings are available to rent for a flat hourly fee. Sometimes the price differs depending on the size of the group that’s booking, but sometimes it doesn’t. For large groups of guests, the often high price points make sense when you divide it up. However, for smaller groups it can be unreasonable. If a couple wants to have a romantic date or an intimate golden hour drink, are they going to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars? With Viewnary, you can cater to both larger and smaller groups by setting an hourly price per guest. You decide how many guests you can host, as well as which price you want to charge. This gives you total control of how many people are at your property and for how long.
While other space-rental platforms offer practically any type of property, Viewnary specializes in properties/spaces with unique views and settings. If you have a balcony, terrace or even an indoor area with amazing views of the New York skyline, for example, all you need to do is rent out that specific space – not your entire property (unless you want to). This makes hosting on Viewnary less invasive and protective of your privacy than any other platform out there.
Do you value your time? If so, you probably don’t want to be spending hours – and dollars – taking care of property cleanup and maintenance. When you rent out your place on overnight platforms or the likes of Peerspace and Splacer, maintenance is a serious and unavoidable concern. Since you’re most likely only hosting guests on a specific part of your property, like a deck or terrace, there’s simply less to clean up and maintain. In addition, Viewnary bookings are easy to fit into a busy schedule since you can decide exactly when and for how long you can host. Have an hour free at home next Thursday evening? No problem, you can earn from that one hour just by renting it out to a photographer who wants to boost his Instagram gallery with your best views in New York.
If you want to make money in real estate in a stress-free and new way, Viewnary is your best bet. Learn more about the benefits of hosting on Viewnary and how to get started here.
