Hello so I wanted to ask you all lovely people if I should “House Hack” and get a home mortgage at such a young age. I am thinking of an FHA loan being that is the only way I’ll be able to get the down payment. I am currently 17 saving up all my money and looking to live with my parents for the next 2-3 years to minimize expenses and save up as much money as I can. I am looking to see if I can get approved for a duplex and rent out one side and live in the other with a friend. So my question is, 1. Is it realistic 2. Should I even invest and go into debt this early in life? I live in Colorado and would probably buy in the Denver area.
