Seven months ago, my wife Dana and I, purchased our first triplex (picture above) and began our House Hacking journey. In a nutshell, House Hacking, is when you purchase a property as your primary residence and rent out the extra space. For example, we own a triplex, where we live in one of the units and rent the other two units out. The rental income from our other two units, pays for our mortgage and home expenses. This strategy has allowed us to start our journey as real estate investors and learn how to build wealth overtime.
Four Things House Hacking Provides:
- Loan Paydown
- Tax Breaks
Before Dana and I started on our journey, we started by reading and networking to learn how to build wealth through Real Estate. This journey led us to House Hacking, and it was the vehicle we decided to us to achieve our long-term wealth goals. Listed below are resources that helped us, and I hope they will help you as well.
