I am looking for my first deal and was looking to house-hack as my fiancé and I are currently living with my family. We have been having trouble finding a good investment without getting outbid. I need to make sure the area is at least safe for us and especially myself being a woman. We both work in the city so we were looking in the Hudson county area.
I am trying to find a place that can work out and not use up most of my money as I would like to invest in other properties this year. Do you have any recommendation?
