Tired of throwing rent money into the wind? Dreaming of owning your own place, but the mortgage monster seems scary? Well, Indiana, there’s a clever trick up your sleeve called house hacking, and it can open the door to homeownership faster than you think!

What is House Hacking?

Imagine living in a multi-family home, like a duplex or triplex, and using the rent from other units to offset your mortgage. Or, picture yourself cozying up in a single-family home with a cozy ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit), collecting rent from that separate living space. That’s house hacking in a nutshell! It’s like having neighbors who pay your mortgage for you, and it’s surprisingly accessible.

Why is it Hot Right Now?

Traditionally, house hacking meant using FHA loans. But exciting news! Recent tweaks in conventional loan guidelines now allow you to do it too. This opens doors for more Hoosiers to jump into the house hacking game.

Benefits of House Hacking:

  • Lower your housing costs: Rent from your tenants can cover a significant portion of your mortgage, making your living expenses a breeze.

  • Build equity faster: Every mortgage payment is chipping away at your loan, while you’re also collecting extra income. Boom! Your net worth rises month after month.

  • Jumpstart your real estate portfolio: House hacking can be a stepping stone to building a real estate empire. Rent the extra units, then leverage the equity to invest in another property. It’s like a financial snowball rolling downhill!

  • Tax advantages: There might be tax deductions for owning a rental property. Consult your friendly accountant for details, but hey, more deductions mean less tax bite!
