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!

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???

lacking humanity

This book has good tips. You can find most of them online or on the BP podcast. What bothers me is how myopic the author sounds. A lot of his priorities seem to be imprinted in this book. He goes as far as to suggest to the reader not to listen to the news because it is a waste of time and that time can be spent making more money. Author sounds young and naive with self serving, borderline sociopathic, tendencies.

Pleasantly Surprised!

This is a great book. I read a review before buying that said it contained a lot of obvious information. I've been investing for four years and the book told me plenty I didn't know and gave me some great ideas. I'm also getting the hard copy so I have a reference to go back to.

Great book. Great strategy.

Easy read with great strategies on how to invest. This is especially great for people who are new to investing, those who have a full time job but want to invest, or those who don't have a lot of money to invest.

Too long hype over an old concept

This might seem as a new concept to the author - but in reality this is likely the oldest and most common concept of renting - shared living (or as they call it house hacking).

All over the world people rented rooms since the first structures were built. And today almost "every third" house/apartment, in any country of the world, rents out extra space (room, basement, mother in law apartment, accessory dwelling unit, remodeled garage, etc.).

Read classic "The Richest Man in Babylon" and you will find references to rooms for rent thousands of years ago.

This hype over re-inventing a wheel should not be longer than 1 hour. The remaining 9 hours is an eloquent empty talk.
