House Hacker Zack Van Prooyen joined me in the studio to discuss how he house hacks. Zack has a personal finance background and a strong interest in achieving financial freedom through real estate and investing in index funds. My kind of guy!
Zack bought a duplex in 2010 in Denver with the intent of buying house hack #2 a couple of years later. Well, the market started heating up and he decided to wait. After a few years of waiting for the market to cool, he changed his focus to dollar cost averaging into the market. He bought house hack #2 last year in Aurora.
Highlights from the show:
- How he screens tenants to minimize no-show appointments.
- What software he uses for running applications.
- How he manages risk in real estate.
- Advice for others looking to house hack.
