Real Estate Agent

Real estate can be done from absolutely anywhere, so why do it in a cold, windy city when you could do it wearing flip-flips and sunglasses?

Beach destinations are some of the most expensive real-estate markets in the world, from Malibu to the French Riviera. People will always want to buy real estate in these sun-drenched markets, so the work would be steady, and there’s a good chance you’ll boost your salary in the process.

On average, real-estate agents make $30,000 to $60,000, but depending on the market, you can make $100,000 or more, according to PayScale.com.

At the beach: Of course you’ll need to get licensed in that area, and you’ll need to get up from your beach chair to show properties, but your cold calls and online listings could all be managed using a cell phone and laptop.
