The platform allows anyone to rent out closets, basements, garages, space under lofted beds, backyards, parking spaces and more.
However, Joshua has been using the platform to rent out his backyard and a single 40-ft storage container for about 18 months.
He rents out the storage unit for about $170 a month, and after Neighbor.com takes its portion, he sees about $160.
Joshua uses the two-acre backyard to park vehicles.
As of right now, he has boats, cars, RVs, horse trailers and military hummers parked there.
Joshua, who owns and lives in his current home with his family, had briefly heard about renting out your backyard through an acquaintance.
To help, Joshua’s brother started to google the idea and came across Neighbor.com.
Joshua said, “It looked like a good idea, and I wanted to earn some extra cash, so I made an account.”
When he originally signed up in August 2020, he didn’t really think anyone would be interested in renting out his backyard and storage unit.
However, Joshua started seeing an income as soon as the next month and things have been going pretty well so far.
The lease term generally varies, and Joshua noted that he tries his best to accommodate people’s leasing needs by renting out space for as little as two months to a year.
He said: “One guy is from Australia, and he moved to the U.S. to get a business idea of his started.
“However, the guy ended up going back to Australia to take care of his mother, and his car is still here.”
Joshua is not the only person who has seen success on Neighbor.com.
Jonathan, the host of Gignation, also saw success when he signed up for the platform, as he’s shared on YouTube.
Jonathan rented out his garage for $95 a month and took home $75 equating to $900 annually in passive income.
