Is House-Hacking Impossible in Bay Area, CA? I want your opinion!
What's up BP family!
I know many of investors that search for out of state opportunities if they live in Bay Area, CA, or California in general. Especially for beginners. Myself included. But what I'm interested to know is what my experienced and informed BP people think.
I'm currently stationed here with my spouse on military orders and we're going to be here for a while. I wouldn't hate to use a house-hacking option for my first deal, as it would serve multiple purposes for us at this time. My thoughts naturally lean against it due to the property values in this area. But I would love to hear from some of you that have experience in this area or any expensive area.
Are there some hidden gems of neighborhoods to look out for in The Bay that DOESN'T cost $700k?!
Anyone currently house-hacking in an expensive area?
Any active duty members here that are using their VA loan and can provide any insight?
Anyone in the area part of a mastermind group they would recommend?
Any and all recommendations and insight is appreciated you guys; I'm ready to WORK!
Much love everyone, thank you in advance!
