How to Find Extra Income  Reply with quote  

I live in an area with a high cost of living. Although I earn a six-figure salary, no one will hire my wife.

It is true that we own two houses, other than the apartment that we live in. And, we rent out those houses to tenants. But, we still owe mortgages on those two houses. So, we don't render much of a profit, from this "business venture".

There is not much of anything that we can cut back on.

As I said, we live in an area with a high cost of living. Moving is easier said than done.

Does anyone have any ideas, on how I can find additional income?

Thanks!

A lot of people freelance online to make extra money. You may want to look at sites like Upwork. Free make money sites are another good way to earn as well. I've been doing that for a long time myself.

See Proof. You can make free money online.

What problem are you solving (why do you need more income?)

Often, people have a problem with properly directing the income that they now have. And moving to a LC area may not be a good solution, your 6-figure IT job is probably location-sensitive.

Here's an example of managing - if a person directs $5000/yr into an investment it grows to million in 30 yrs. But if your tried to 'save up' a million in 30 yrs it would cost you $34,000/yr. Big difference. The first one be accomplished by most wage earners - and the second one is way out of reach for most wage earners.

We're retired now - but for a 40-yr period we owned 4 houses. I continually refinanced the rental houses, removed our equity, and invested it. So most of the profit was from unrealized appreciation, not from taxable rental income. (You realize those profits when you eventually sell the houses).

My point? Managing your current income stream is far more important to you than earning a small amount of added taxable income at min wage evening jobs.

Thanks, oldguy!

How do you remove equity? What are some good investments?

Forgive my ignorance. Smile

When one of the houses gets quite a bit of equity, I refinanced it for a bigger loan.
Eg, if a house with a $75k loan appreciated to $150k, I would refinance the $75k mortgage and get a $120k mortgage. The refi fees might be around $5k and the extra $45,000 would come to me as cash - a good way to raise tax-free cash.

And I invested the $45k in the SP500 Index Fund (mine is with Vanguard but there are many others). That Index has a longterm average return of 11%/yr. At 11%/yr, $45k = $1,1040,000 in 30y.
My 4th rental (owned for 35y) was on its 4th mortgage when I sold it last year. And those 4 cash-outs are still invested & growing in our SP500 Fund). Did that with all 4 houses, but that's the only one that I did 4 times.

The most recent 30-yr average (ending in April) was 9.91%/yr. Check a few 30-yr-blocks, they are run from about 9%/yr to 13%/yr.

Are your houses in a neighborhood that's appreciating steadily?
