Now, keep in mind that some of those mentioned above might require you to have some equipment, software or a business license which, of course, will require you to pay for it. But these are really general expenses that come with the territory of working from home.
Also, since you didn't mention what TYPE of job you are interested in, I tried to find just general openings for you that do not require too much experience. So, there are many others. I would say that the list I've provided to you here is only about 20?f what is available.
I am a member of SOHOjobs.org and they have been very helpful. (They have also allowed me to repost this list for you here to help you). I am working from home doing data entry and editing and I really love my job. So, YES there are real jobs out there that do not require you to pay a fee.
SOHOjobs IS a membership based service, so if you want access to the jobs they offer, they do require a fee. (About $25 bucks). Once you become a member you will get access to all of the homebased jobs available each week and all of their other services. I've found this to be most helpful so I highly support SOHOjobs. In fact, I'd call myself a fan!
The bottom line is YES THERE ARE REAL JOBS out there that do not require a fee. You just need to know where to find them and you need to have the basic requirements to qualify for them. So visit some of the links that I've provided to you here and see if you come up with anything that interests you. (Pay special attention to VIPdesk, Westat, Cloud10, Telereach, etc - as they companies have really excellent reputations and have hired many many people to work from home.)
