VA 2-4 Unit Loans
Using VA Loans to purchase 2, 3 or 4 Unit properties
We offer VA 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. These require Zero Down payment up to $2.0M for qualified Veterans and Active Duty Military with full VA entitlement available. The 2022 VA Loan Limit only applies to Vets and Active Duty Military with partial VA entitlement available. You may still qualify for a VA Loan up to $2.0m with a down payment sufficient to reach the VA Guaranty requirements. You must live in and occupy one of the units to qualify for VA Financing on a 2, 3 or 4 Unit home.
You can use the rental income of the rented units to help qualify. This will be determined either by using existing tenants and their actual rent rolls, or a projected rent schedule from the VA Appraisal. Our VA underwriters will allow you to use 75% of those rents towards your income for qualifying purposes. The VA will require that the Veteran have a high probability of success in managing the rental units, this can be proven from prior experience managing rental properties or a well qualified buyer (liquid assets, good income, great credit profile, etc).
