How to “House Hack” Commercial Real Estate [A Creative Real Estate Investing Strategy!]

Investment Strategies
If you’re in real estate you’ve probably heard of house hacking. But did you know you can actually “house hack” commercial real estate? While the method has been around for quite some time, house hacking rose to popularity as a real estate investing tool during the 2008 downturn. Investors, looking to take advantage of better financing and better cash flow, started seeking duplexes, triplexes, and quadplexes to purchase as owner-occupied investments. They would live in one unit and rent out to one or more tenants that would help cover the costs of owning the property. However, the house hacking method isn’t just for residential real estate. Commercial real estate investors can utilize this strategy to start building their portfolio of investments while their tenants cover the costs.

Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to invest in commercial real estate utilizing the house hacking method.
