Using Your Home to Achieve Financial Freedom w/Craig Curelop from Bigger Pockets
What This Episode is About
We all know there is no “one size fits all” approach to investing in real estate. So, how do you get started in investing when you have little to no capital? Can real estate be a viable method for young adults looking to start their journey to financial freedom? What if there was a way to use the property you already own to generate passive income?
Craig Curelop (aka the FI Guy) is a real estate agent, investor, and author. He graduated from Northeastern University with over $90,000 in student loan debt and a net worth of negative$30,000 in 2017. That is when Craig discovered the idea of “house hacking” and how it could help him achieve financial freedom. Craig used various tactics to earn more, spend less, and invest the difference wisely. He rented out both floors of a duplex, including the bedroom he was living in, to earn passive income.
While there were sacrifices to this style of investing, Craig says it was well worth the initial struggles. Two years later, he is financially independent and gone on to do three “house hacks”, a flip in Jacksonville, FL, and lent on a condo-conversion in Boston, MA. Today he is working with BiggerPockets to show others how they can do the same.
