Who knew living for free could be as simple as house hacking and renting rooms out to a few college friends? Today’s guest was able to generate enough monthly income from his first real estate deal to cover his mortgage payment each month—and then some!
Welcome back to another episode of the Real Estate Rookie podcast! Ryan Hughes’ real estate investing journey started at the age of fourteen, when his father allowed him to go in on a real estate deal. Naturally, Ryan was ready and eager to start investing in his own rental properties by the time he graduated from college. Within months, he had bought his first investment property, one he conveniently spotted while jogging around his neighborhood. Shortly after closing, Ryan had seven people living in the house and paying rent to fully cover his mortgage payment, utilities, and more.
If you’re interested in living for “free” and attaining financial freedom, you’ll want to hear what Ryan has to share about house hacking, building your real estate network, and how to keep the peace with other tenants. As always, Ashley and Tony have some invaluable insights to share as well—from leveraging debt the right way to finding the best home loan products!
