What is house hacking?

Heard of house hacking? Yes, no, maybe so? In short, it’s this: Finding ways to make money with your home.


Back in the day, it meant buying a multifamily property, living in one unit, and renting out the rest. While this still works, it’s no longer your only option. Here are a few other house hacking ideas: 


- Rent out rooms in your home as short-term rentals

- Find some (nice and neat!) roommates and charge rent

- Build a standalone apartment or cottage to rent out on your property

- Rent out a garage or basement for folks to store vehicles and other items
