Description

You often hear about house hacking as a means to an end, a simple way to start your real estate journey, but what if it could be more? What if house hacking could be your ticket to financial freedom? Today’s guest, Craig Curelop, author of The House Hacking Strategy, shares how he reached financial freedom through house hacking and how to follow along in his footsteps.

Craig started where most do, hating his W-2 and working too much. He began researching how to earn a passive income and came across BiggerPockets. Within six months, Craig started working at BiggerPockets, moved to Denver, and decided to start living his life the way he wanted. Using his house hacking strategy, he went from being $30,000 in debt to financial freedom in two and a half years. 

Before you get into house hacking, you need to understand the basics, and today Craig breaks them down. He goes over the different ways to house hack and its advantages and disadvantages. Craig also talks about how to live with your tenants and the boundaries needed for your ideal house hacking situation. Craig paints the whole picture so you can make an informed decision and decide if house hacking is the way for you to become financially free too (or at least build more passive income)!
