biggerpockets entreprenuer househacking invester investing investor realestate womeninconstruction womeninfinance Nov 18, 2022


House hacking is one way to create passive income streams and fund a flexible retirement with the help of modern home-sharing platforms.

Today, Christine McCarron joins Liz and Andresa to talk about how you can start your career as a real estate investor with a house hacking business model. You don’t have to buy an expensive property to get started. You may rent out your home if it has extra rooms, a barn, or even a garage. Christine also shared how you can vet tenants and keep the business thriving without compromising your comfort.

Christine is a real estate agent, investor, author, mentor, and podcaster. She loves helping women to create a massive passive income stream and have more money, more options, and more fun!



• “It's just so much easier with help, and I didn't know how much I didn't know until I actually started to ask for help.” (7:09-7:17)

• “You just have to really say to yourself, ‘How much interaction do I want to have with these people?’” (11:55-12:01)

• “Be 100% honest with yourself about your own personality. That's how you're going to have to decide how much privacy you're going to have to build into this situation.” (12:25-12:41)

• “Most people like things neat, clean, not so generic that you feel like you're in a hotel, but you know, bring a little of your personality.” (15:02-15:09)

• “I think it's always better to be a little bit pessimistic when you're running numbers.” (21:38-21:342)

• “I think you should be looking at your life and your pleasure and what's going to bring you joy, because at this point, maybe isn't all about the money.” (27:39 - 27:48)
