reserved for season two as this
strategy's unique characteristics
required its own spotlight.
The new season will also place an emphasis
on renovation and home improvement, which
can help increase a property's value and the
rental rates it can command.

who will share their experiences in house hacking.
House hacking is one of the easiest
ways to become a real estate investor,
and FI by REI’s podcast series will give
