So much Information

I really enjoy the book and take notes as I go. I really learn a lot and can’t wait each time to share the knowledge with my husband. It’s an easy read. And even though some specific case senators in the book don’t apply to you, you still learn a lot. I’m glad I was able to support the community by buying the book on BP and not Amazon.

So many great nuggets of information

I know house hacking is what I want to do. That's how my father started building his real estate rental portfolio 48 years ago. But this book had so many more ideas on how to go about doing it. Amazing! Definitely putting what I learned into action.
