Ben Einspahr
Ben Einspahr is the House Hacking & AirBnB Specialist at Envision Advisors. He helps clients implement strategies that generate above average income from their properties in Denver, where cashflow is getting harder and harder to find.

He’s an investor himself, and for the past several years he’s been building his portfolio both in and out of state. He has 3 properties which he’s used to replace his w-2 income. It just goes to show how the number of doors matters so much less than the cashflow that each one produces!

  • Out of state single family home in Nebraska: Years ago, he house hacked this property, and now he self-manages it long-distance.
  • Single family home with ADU in Arvada: Another previously house hacked property that he now rents out using both long term and medium term rental strategies.
  • Townhome with a studio in Wheat Ridge: This is his current primary residence. He uses a short term rental strategy for the basement studio. He’s perfected the process for operating an Airbnb as a live-in without losing his mind and making his family crazy.

Over the past 3 years, Ben has figured out how to implement automated systems that keep his guests happy and generate a solid and dependable income stream. He’s a superhost on Airbnb with a Rare Find property that is usually fully booked.

Thanks to the income his properties are generating, he was able to leave his W2 job and pursue his true passion of coaching and mentoring others.

Ben loves to share his knowledge about house hacking in the Denver metro area. You’ve seen him as the host of the House Hack Mastermind Podcast series and the Host of the House Hack Ride Along series.

March 2021

The place was awesome! The hosts were hospitable and responded quickly. Everything was very neat and clean. All of the space was thoughtfully used and I like the fact that the bed folded up to allow for more space. I loved the outside area, with plenty of room for lounging and talking. Its not downtown but everything is still pretty close by which I enjoyed as well. I would happily reserve this place again.


May 2021

Alyson and Ben were extremely communicative, even though we physically did not interact with them. Their place was quaint and clean. You cannot beat the location as it is 15 min away from downtown and Golden, and also on the way to Boulder. There’s also a breakfast burrito place for $2.75 right out the door. Amazing stay! Would definitely recommend!


November 2021

Alyson and Ben were amazing hosts! Their place had everything we needed, plus more! It was in a great location if you're looking for outdoors-y activities as well as city life. Alyson and Ben were able to accommodate for us and were very quick to respond. I definitely recommend their home!

Here’s What Ben’s Clients Say about His Coaching

Luiz Franco

Ben has been so positive, helpful and trustworthy. He’s really been a huge support of our real estate journey. We’re going though our first STR and I’ve had a ton of questions and doubts. He has dedicated real time and effort to providing us with feedback and knowledge. Ben makes you feel like you will achieve anything you decide for yourself and I am forever grateful!

Irina Bamett

Ben and Jeff have been an essential support during my house hacking journey. They have provided data for rent analysis, design solutions, templates for screening tenants and have encouraged me during my moment of doubt. They have sound advice every single time I reach out and most importantly they are very kind. I like to call them coaches for the disposition to only help me succeed but also push my limits like any coach would. I recommend their services anytime!

Dan Klawitte

When I first started researching house hacking, I was unsure if it was the right solution for me. Meeting with Ben, learning about his investments, talking through the pros and cons, and learning about the upside of short-term rentals was all I needed to get comfortable and make my first investment. Ben is an experienced house hacker/STR host and provided me and my girlfriend invaluable advice!

A Frank Disclaimer

Hi. Chris Lopez, Founder of Envision Advisors, and host of the Denver Real Estate Investing Podcast. I want to make sure you understand that this is not a get rich quick scheme. The results Ben has achieved are not typical, and your results will vary significantly. He’s put in years of effort to refine his systems and been very fortunate. Not all short term rentals will succeed as a business, and this product doesn’t guarantee success. This offering is an educational tool that will give you the information and resources to set up and manage your short term rental efficiently and systematically. Always remember that running a business involves risk. Some businesses succeed, and some fail. Any testimonials are real and valid, but are not guarantees you will obtain the same results.
