Publisher's Summary

House hacking 101: Don’t pay for your home, hack it and live for free!

Savvy investors have been using a little-known but clever strategy in real estate for decades, and now, you will learn exactly how to perfect this trade secret! When mastered, house hacking can save you thousands of dollars in monthly expenses, build tens of thousands of dollars in equity each year, and provide the financial means to retire early. In fact, the average house hacker can turn a single-family home or small multifamily property into a cash-flowing investment. You can collect rent that completely covers your living expenses, and then some!

In this audiobook, serial house hacker Craig Curelop lays out the in-depth details so you can make your first (or next) house hack a huge success.

  • How to find the ideal house-hack property - even in a competitive or expensive market
  • Property management strategies to make ownership a breeze
  • Stories from real estate investors all over the country on their house-hacking triumphs, mishaps, and their purpose behind financial independence

unrealistic and repetitive

Worst of all the BP books produced. ALL relevant of the information is just repeated from other BP RE books anything else is common sense. All real life examples are completely unrealistic compared to the average person. "this is so and so, a fresh 23 year old college grad making 70k a year, can only afford 3.5% down" give me a break. is this HGTV???

Instruction Manual for Wealth

Craig does an excellent job guiding you through the process of setting up a house hack, which has the dual advantage of lowering expenses **and** providing cashflow. I agree with Craig when he says that there's no better investment you can make.

Great book for anyone starting out!

The author, Craig Curelop, does an amazing job at detailing the step-by-step process of house hacking. Other books will touch on the topic, but this is the best book for anyone getting started. The stories at the end of each chapter help orchestrate how the steps in the book can be put into real life practice. If you want a manual for how to to find, purchase, and successfully operate your first house hack, this is the book for you!

Never to late to start...

This book is a great explanation of a relatively simple process to get into the real estate investing game. More importantly it breaks their system down into something easily digestible whole providing examples and resources to get underway.
