FHA 2-4 Unit Info

FHA Loans can be used to purchase 2, 3 or 4 Unit properties

We offer FHA Loans to finance the purchase of a multi family home (2-unit, 3-unit or 4 Unit, aka Duplex, Triplex, and Fourplex). This can be a great investment strategy, as you can live in one of the units and rent out the other units. This awesome opportunity only requires the standard 3.5% FHA Down payment and that you live in and occupy one of the units to qualify for FHA Financing.

You can use the rental income of the rented unit on a 2-unit or Duplex to help qualify.   This will determined either by using existing tenants and their actual rent rolls, or a projected rent schedule from the FHA Appraisal. Our FHA underwriters will allow you to use 75% of those rents towards your income for qualifying purposes.

We now offer Down Payment Assistance options for Duplex / 2-Unit home purchases.

Zero down payment required Duplex loans for qualified Buyers. 

 For 3-4 unit properties, the rents can also be counted towards income to help qualify – however the total projected net rents on the units must cover the entire PITI payment.   Call for details.  866-900-2342 toll free direct.   for Triplex and Quadruplex purchases, FHA also requires that you have 3 months PITI reserves remaining after closing  this helps ensure you have the ability to weather vacancies, etc.

You can also utilize FHA Loans to Refinance your current 2, 3 or 4 unit property (if you occupy one unit as your primary residence).   Contact us direct to review if it makes sense for you.
