Today we’re talking with our friend Craig Curelop about the magic wealth building technique of house hacking. Back in 2017 Craig had a negative net worth of $30,000. But by implementing different tactics to earn more, spend less, and invest the difference, he was able to reach financial independence two years later in 2019. And of course house hacking played a major role in Craig’s rapid ascent towards financial freedom. We cover all the ins and outs of house hacking and we discuss the different house hacking methods because there are a variety of options that you could go with as some of that depends on your personal situation like if you’re single or if you have a family. We’re going to cover what you need to know, before you start house hacking your way to financial freedom.
- Be sure to check out Craig’s podcast- Invest2Fi, and you can find him as TheFiGuy on Instagram and Tiktok.
- Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
