Looking to Invest In an Owner-Occupy MFH

1 Reply


I am relatively new to the REI strategies but am ready to learn and to begin investing. I currently have a W2 job and would have extra time/money to begin my portfolio. I real like the concept of house hacking my way to financial freedom. My plan is to continue the W2 route while also obtaining RE. I am located in the Central Wisconsin area, Wausau specifically. In this area, it is not uncommon to find properties under 90K that meet both the 1% rule and the 50% rule on paper. I have been running a lot of numbers and some properties look good. 

Were I have been struggling is finding a MLS agent that can get me into these MFHs. I work a decent amount of hours but am ready to buy now. I am seeking both general advise on house hacking and also specific advise on the area and also MLS agents in the area.

Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
