Real Estate is a fluctuating market, so you have to update yourself continuously. Investing money on real estate requires a lot of patience as acquiring returns on the investment property may be immediate or may require years.

The correct strategy to earn standard income on passive source requires knowledge and experience. People are more inclined towards investing in the Real estate because they think we can sell the property as it’s valued increases over time or we shall earn income by giving property on rentals.

But renting the property if you have stable tenants is a great source of income. Who won’t like it if you get extra income in your pocket?

But for that extra income and investment on should understand that with growing fluctuations in the real estate market, you can’t get stable income only by applying business strategies. Also, Luck factor plays a great role in passive income.

Here peer-to-peer lending is lending money to the borrower at lower interest. This is done online through by selecting lenders and borrowers who match with each other.

Here the profit is done on both the lenders as well as borrowers side because lenders earn income by receiving the additional interest on the money which they have lent. Borrowers also earn a profit because they don’t have to pay much interest as compared to traditional Banks interest.

As a result, both the parties are happy, and both earn income. It is one of the oldest passive income sources, yet it involves lot’s of risk because there is no necessary bond or written agreement between lenders and borrowers

There are many online websites which provide such facility of peer-to-peer lending such as Upstart, Funding Circle, Prosper Marketplace.
