How To Live Essentially Mortgage-Free

How to live mortgage-free while building wealth by house-hacking.

House-hacking is how I ended up getting into real estate in 2002. The first home I bought was a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. I got a 30-year mortgage on it and I rented out two of the rooms. I had $1,200 per month coming in, which offset my mortgage. I was essentially living for free.

It was a little difficult having roommates, but was it worth it because I was able to claim that $14,000 of extra income I was getting per year on my taxes. Then I went to the bank and they approved me for more properties. I ended up buying four more homes and renting them out as well.

There are different types of house-hacking. You could buy a duplex , rent out one of the units, and live in the other, for example. You could also buy a two-acre property,  build another house on the land, and rent that out to offset the mortgage.

If you’d like to know more about how house-hacking works and want to do a no-obligation consultation, please reach out to us. We’re also here to answer any real estate-related questions that you might have.

History has shown us that real estate is cyclical, and all the local statistics indicate that it’s an awesome time to consider selling your home. We’ve found that homes in the lower price points are in high demand. We recently listed a home at $250,000, and we received some 32 offers on it! If you’re considering moving up, no matter your situation, we’d love the opportunity to review your needs and wants regarding a home and to take a look at market trends so you know exactly what you’re working with.

Recently, you’ve probably heard talk in the news media about the economy slowing down. I always want to ground these sorts of conversations—they all talk about the future, but the truth is that nobody has a clue about what’s really going to happen. That in mind, today I want to reframe the conversation and let you know what’s actually going on in today’s market.
