While a pension is a fine source of income, there are better ways for seniors to supplement their income, and you don’t even have to expend much effort at all!
Seniors are increasingly turning toward property management as a method for increasing their income after they have retired. Owning and managing property is a relatively low-effort, low-impact way to keep your income up, and it can serve as a very effective investment for anyone willing to make the initial purchase.
Paying for the property itself is a bit of an initial cost, yes, but prices on property are actually relatively low right now, so you can make more money on property if you get into the field soon.
As the landlord, you will be able to select tenants that will reliably pay their rent and keep their living area clean.
With a small regular effort in maintaining the property, you generally make back your money and plenty more via your tenant’s rent payments. What does this mean for you? It means plenty of supplemental income for you with minimal effort that will continue for as long as you care to maintain the property. Then, as a final source of income, you can sell off the property when you no longer have time to work on it.
