Houst operate in 22 cities around the world, so we know that the cost of living in one can get pretty pricey these days. Luckily, it seems as if every day there’s a new platform helping you earn some extra cash. Thanks to the booming sharing economy - set to be worth $335 billion to the US economy by 2025 -  it’s easier than ever to earn while you’re traveling, working, or even sleeping. We're tipping these five to be the next Airbnb...

1. Getaround

Getaround is Airbnb for your car. Car owners all over Europe and the US can let their own car out at an hourly rate, or rent one themselves! I hear you, what about insurance? Getaround cover every car for up to $1,000,000 - renters and owners alike.

2. Peerspace

Peerspace recently launched in San Diego, Houst’s American home, letting out unique event spaces by the hour. Homeowners, office-owners, and studio-owners alike can rent their space while it’s left idle. Similar to Airbnb but for meetings, performances, events - anything you can think of! Convert your space into cash without making any beds.

3. JustPark

Do you live near the stadium? The station? You could be parking on a goldmine. JustPark allows homeowners to rent out their driveways at an hourly rate. Spaces cost around $10 an hour and are an easy moneymaker if your spot sits empty while you’re at work, running errands, or away.

4. Eatwith

Airbnb has come along way since 2008, but it started as a way to stay with locals, not just rent their house. Eatwith takes this simple idea and applies it to food. It’s perfect for those amateur chefs among you wanting to show off your skills! You can either host a private event, give a cooking class or act as a food tour guide.

5. Boatsetter

Airbnb for... yep, you guessed it. Boat owners can let for full days or half days, so unless you plan to be on the boat every day next summer this is the perfect money maker. Particularly lucrative on bank holidays - just add water.

We’ve picked five of our favourites here, but there are endless opportunities to explore secondary income options. Whether you have space to fill in your home, driveway or kitchen, the sharing economy is here to help and it’s here to stay.
