    Everything You Need to Know About House Hacking

    Everything You Need to Know About House Hacking

    Today we’re joined by Bradley LaBrie from househackingsuccess.com. I really enjoyed my chat with Brad, who started his real estate career in 2014 with a live-in flip that went horribly wrong. Because of construction and tenant issues (his tenant even got murdered!), Brad lost every penny on his first deal. Even though he had a rough start, he kept moving forward. We get into that crazy “murder-y” first deal and also discuss the benefits of doing a bad real estate deal and how it will pay you back ten-fold throughout your career.
     
    In this episode we cover:
    Everything about house hacking How Brad lost every penny on his first deal Listening to podcasts will never replicate the experience you gain from your first deal Low down payment options for getting into real estate Navigating Covid-19 Low interest rates make it the best time to get your first house hack
