House hacking, renting by the room, co-living, boarding houses? These are all things that author, investor, real estate agent, and expert hacker of houses, Craig Curelop, is used to. Craig got his start in real estate investing by renting out rooms in his own home, having his roommates pay his mortgage for him, and eventually skating on to financial freedom.

Craig is joined by another familiar expert house hacker and real estate investor, David Greene, to answer questions around lending, leases, and the legality of raising private money. With so many new real estate rookies in the investing sphere, this episode is a great intro for anyone who’s looking to plan, start, or scale their next real estate investment.

Craig and David fire from the hip in this episode, answering questions live with topics ranging from scaling your business while keeping your free time, refinancing on a shared boarding house, raising private capital (equity vs. debt), what to expect when you house hack, and how to rent out your home in the snowy winter.

In This Episode We Cover:

Establishing your “beachhead” as an investor, business owner, or real estate agent

Strategizing your refinance when your home is less than conventional

How much interest to promise investors and when to raise capital 

Planning your house hack purchase and setting up your home for multiple roommates

Precautions to take when renting out your home in the winter

And So Much More!
