Show Notes:

Reports:

    • A pandemic, an incredible recession, a stock market crash, and the racial injustice people are finally recognizing on a bigger scale…have beaten us up these past four months. BUT there’s good news?!
    • There are going to be pages and pages of text written about this time period we’re in right now. The markets are up more than expected and the most recent jobs report was not as bad as we thought it might be.

Mailbag Question 1:

    • “We make about $110,000 per year in Mobile, AL. We can rent an apartment for about $750/month, but we’re looking into house hacking – (live in part of duplex/tri-plex and rent out the other sides, in hopes to have your mortgage -or most of it- paid by the tenants)–  What should we do: fork over rent each month or look for a property that will allow us + tenants to pay the mortgage so we can save more money each month?”
      • Damian and his wife would have done it if the timing was right when they got married. “A management company may help with administration, but there’s a cost that comes with that service.”
      • Pete was a landlord until December 2019, but ultimately decided that wasn’t for him. Disputes about rent, maintenance costs, etc. are a headache. “House Hacking is not for me, but it could be for someone else.”
