Passive income doesn’t necessarily mean that you sit back and watch the money roll in without doing anything, though. According to Jon Sanborn, co-founder of Brotherly Love Real Estate in Philadelphia, “A passive income is a real estate strategy through which investors can generate earnings without being actively involved.”

It often means having some money to put down as an investment up front before that investment pays off in other ways. Here are 10 ways experts recommend earning passive income through real estate.

Sanborn recommends renting out “the other part [of your home] either as short-term rentals or as a studio rental.”

After applying for a short-term rental license from the city, on game day weekends he can make as much as $1,250 per night by renting out his home.
