Podcast #72: Denver House Hacking w/ Zack Van Prooyen

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.
