New wanna be House hacker in the north Seattle area!

2 Replies

HEllo everyone on BP! I have been a lurker for a few years, and I somehow haven't gotten around to posting anything. I am 26 years old, and a small business owner in the greater PNW area. My brother and I are a general contractor, specializing in SFR remodels.

I'm currently looking to purchase a 2-4 unit home for my family and I in the north seattle area and I've been scouring the forums for help! I look forward to meeting you all. 



Welcome, James! Sounds like your "lurking" has lead you to a pretty solid strategy for your REI career.

I don't have many regrets in my REI journey, but if I could do it over, I would house hack early and often, just like you're planning. And your business experience in GC / remodeling will be a huge benefit for you.

Well done and keep us all posted on your journey. Can't wait to read your update in the Success Stories forum ;)
