House Hacking is how I got into real estate all the way back in 2002. The first home I bought was a three-bedroom, two-bath. I got a 30-year mortgage and I rented out two of the rooms. I had $1,200 per month coming in, which offset my mortgage so I was essentially living for free. This is a great way to build wealth and get into the real estate industry.

Do you know how many different types of home inspectors there are? Of course, you have the general inspector who looks over the whole house for defects or damage. However, there are also electrical, HVAC, crawlspace, radon, pool, and soil inspectors, just to name a few. We have a full list of vetted inspectors for any type of inspection you might need.
The question of whether or not a pre-inspection is necessary for home sellers depends on the market they’re in. Back in 2010, you had to win the beauty contest and the price war. Today, we have a four-day supply of homes on the market. At the end of the day, I say skip the pre-inspection in 2021. To learn why, watch this short video.

To find out how my friend was being taken advantage of and how to avoid this happening to you, watch this short video.
