Looking for my first investment property

3 Replies

Hello everyone! I am brand new to investing in real-estate but not new to houses as I have been working as a contractor for three years. I have just gotten pre-approved for a loan and I know I want to house-hack my first property. I was wondering if there's anything specific to look for or general guidelines to help weed out good deals or good houses to house hack. Looking forward to being apart of this community feel free to reach out and connect!
