How To Turn Homeownership into a Side Hustle
Does the rising cost of just about everything these days make your dream of owning your own home feel less within reach?
This approach serves a strong purpose. As Manny Garcia, Senior Population Scientist at Zillow, says:
“For those first-time buyers navigating the ‘side hustle culture,’ where a regular 9-to-5 might not quite cut it for homeownership dreams, rental income can step in to help . . .”
Basically, it can help you afford your monthly mortgage payments. So if you’re open to it, renting out a portion of your home not only helps with affordability, but it also positions you as an investor and turns your home into a source of income.
In the face of today’s affordability challenges, both of these strategies offer more attainable paths to homeownership, especially for younger buyers. If you want to discuss these options and see how they might play out for you in your local market, connect with a trusted real estate agent.
