One of the most popular ways to get started in real estate is through house hacking. This is how Chad got his start as well, only he did it a little different. Usually, someone will purchase a multifamily property and live in one of the units while renting out the other unit or units. Chad needed someone to help pay the mortgage so his friend moved in and his rent paid almost the whole mortgage. That got chad started and he quickly set out to get more property.
