I have always dreamed of having ‘’bed and breakfast’’ business or small chain of coffee shop’s just like you can find in London. I used to work in one called “L’amandine” in Richmond. The place where you can drink good coffee and eat fresh sandwiches and self-made cakes. Well , it’s not easy to run business like this because to satisfy each customer is a big challenge. Most people are difficult, I know it out of experience.
Then I came to an idea of renting flats or apartments to other people. That’s easiest way to make money and doing actually nothing. Once you renovate the place your job is done..
I would invest money into buying two or three apartments in Antwerp and one small house with a swimming pool in Empuriabrava in Spain.
Antwerp is a good place for investing money and prices of renting a flat of 2 bedroom flat is around 600 EUR a month. You only need to draw up a good contract and make sure that your tenants deposit a two month of warranty to make sure won’t be in troubles if people doesn’t pay the rent or destroy the property.

The very word conjures up images of money-a bountiful sum in cash or checks, a generous amount, richly deserved, paid in return for good works of some kind. But in today's economic and employment environment, giving someone a cash reward for work beyond the call of duty-a raise or a bonus-often has less impact than the employer intended.

Empuriabrava is small city on the Mediterranean coast, on the Costa Brava, only 150 km from Barcelona. The area has a great cultural offer forming the interior of the Costa Brava. The visitor will find various museums along the coast, the most famous it’s probably the Dali Museum in Figures near Llanca. A large number of Roman excavations in Empuries by La Escala and last but not least, the enormously wide range of cultural offerings in Gerona and Barcelona, will also suprise you . Whether you like diving, sailing, waterskiing, there on the Costa Brava they will find everything.
That’s why I think buying a house there will be a great idea and an opportunity to make easy money. I only wish I had those 1000 000 euro to make my dreams come true…
