Great job and thank you for sharing!
That is so awesome @Gary Crawford : congrats and much respect to you. I’m brand new at this, so this is definitely inspiring!
Two questions. How much was the average utilities cost of the place per month and was it hard to live with 6 people in the same place? Having six cars at the house and having neighbors not liking all those people/cars.
Work smart, work hard and never quit. Good work.
This is such an amazing story, it literally puts that first time buy into perspective and I love that you were at W-2 job as many others are and still saw it through. Truly inspiring!!!
Wow, thanks for sharing Gary! For your first deal, you absolutely crushed it!
Congrats on your success. Thank you for the inspiring words. Good luck on your future endeavors.
Excellent story. I like the room rental idea, I've considered it here before but it's not different than just renting out the whole house to one tenant income wise and much more work than a single tenant. I've house hacked before and made nearly a quarter mil in 2 years. Most of my properties are single family rentals with single tenants in them but house hacking is definitely a way to boost your returns starting out.
congratulations! Such an inspiring story
.. That's amazing .. Congrats!! I'm looking forward to hearing about your future investments.
New to the forum and inspiring to find posts like this, thank you and good luck moving forward!
Have you asked the Seller why countered $5K more and credit back at closing the same amount?
This was the first post I read in this forum. I want to get started on house hacking as well! How did you run your numbers and figure out if that property was worth the investment? I think I am stuck in knowing how to properly run numbers. I really am grateful to have read your post. Thank you for sharing your experience!
Wow!!! Thank you so much for this!!! it motivated me to take action! getting ready to go see a house!!!
@Gary Crawford This is truly ingenuity at it's best!
