Rental Arbitrage: $200k in Profit Without Owning Any Property

rental arbitrage

Rental arbitrage gives you a way to make money with Airbnb — without owning any property.

Traditionally, building a real estate side hustle takes big bucks for down payments, closing costs, and renovation projects.

But enterprising short-term rental “moguls” are questioning if owning the property is even necessary. These rental arbitrage entrepreneurs sign long-term leases, and then turn around and sub-let the property on a short-term basis — profiting on the spread.

387: Retiring Early with Real Estate: $15k a Month in Passive Cash Flow

Dustin Heiner

The passive income dream is real for Dustin Heiner of MasterPassiveIncome.com, he’s currently making $15k a month with around 30 minutes time investment on his part.

Dustin has achieved this by following a systematic approach to buying and letting out properties.

He started with his first property back in 2006. Within 6 years he had 19 properties, and within 9 years he had 26 properties and had retired from his day job at the age of 37.

Land Flipping: From Zero to $10,000 a Month on the Side

Roberto Chavez started his raw land flipping side hustle a little over a year ago, and with persistence, has already built it into 5-figures of monthly revenue.

This is a business model that was first introduced to me by Mark Podolsky, from TheLandGeek.com, in episode 108 of The Side Hustle Show.

He called it “the best passive income model” because it avoids “the 3 T’s” of traditional real estate investing: tenants, toilets, and termites.

350: Is Real Estate Your Next Income Stream? Rental Property Q & A

Buy a house.

Rent it out.

Tenants pay it off for you.

It’s possibly one of the oldest side hustles in the books, right?

Done right, owning rental properties can be an attractive long-term income and wealth-building strategy. But done wrong, it can be a recipe for headaches and a mountain of debt. 

169: The Best Passive Income Model: Raw Land Investing Update (Part 2)

This is the second in what will (at least) be a 2-part series on side hustlers earning income from their land investment endeavors.

In this special Friday edition of the show, I’m joined by Chris Pritchard. Chris is a software developer by day, but has built his land investing business up to $1500/mo in recurring revenue.

In addition, Chris does the occasional cash flip and also has more than $70,000 worth of land payments under contract. Not bad for a year of dedicated focus and effort!

168: The Best Passive Income Model: Raw Land Investing Update (Part 1)

In episode 108 of The Side Hustle Show last year, we met Mark Podolsky, a real estate investor specializing in raw land. He called it “The Best Passive Income Model,” because there are no products to build, no tenants or toilets, and you can start without a huge upfront investment.

This year, I wanted to feature a couple listeners who took action based on that episode. The first is my friend Josh Brooks, an Army Battalion Commander and founder of The Enduring Charity Foundation.

148: 7 Houses at 27: Building a Real Estate Empire on the Side

Elizabeth Colegrove and her husband are budding real estate moguls. So far they’ve acquired 7 houses, and neither of them are 30 years old yet.

Between their 7 properties, they’re earning around $1800 in cash flow every month, and their tenants are paying off $1650 in loan principal.

But real estate investment is not without risks and Elizabeth joked that I just have easily could have called the episode 27 and $1.1 million in debt.
