Have you ever considered flipping houses? What about living in them, with your kids, through the renovations? I promise, it’s not as crazy as it sounds. And If you’re just getting started in real estate investing, it could actually be a really great option for you.
Real estate is one of those things that can feel really scary. And it does have a lot of moving pieces. But if you’re willing to pay close attention to your market and figure out what strategy works for your family—whether that’s house hacking, live-in flips, rental properties, etc.—it can be a great way to grow your wealth and create freedom in your life.
Mindy Jensen has been doing live-in flips for over 20 years. After leaving a job she wasn’t passionate about to be home with her kids until they were both in school, Mindy is now the Community Manager for BiggerPockets.com – a hub for insight, advice, and community for all real estate investors, the host of the Bigger Pockets Money Podcast, and author of the book – How to Sell Your Home.
What I loved most about this interview is hearing how real estate helped Mindy and her husband achieve financial independence and create freedom in their lives. Her passion for the industry and helping other mamas achieve the same success is truly inspiring.
In today’s episode, Mindy is going to share with us how live-in flips work, what it looks like with kids, and how to sell your house for the best price—whether you’re a real estate investor or just ready for your next home.
