VA 2-4 Unit Loans
Using VA Loans to purchase San Diego 2, 3 or 4 Unit properties
We offer VA Loans to finance the purchase of a San Diego 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 requires Zero Down payment up to $2,000,000 for Veterans with full VA Entitlement available. The 2023 San Diego VA Loan Limit of $977,500 only applies to Veterans with partial VA Entitlement available. See below for more on down payment requirements and formulas for partial VA Entitlement scenarios. We still allow VA loans up to $2M for partial VA Entitlement scenarios when the minimum down payment is applied.
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), call us to review.

VA Loans are available with zero down payment for VA 2, 3 or 4 plex purchase and refinance up to $2M. We don’t limit Veterans to the San Diego 2023 VA Loan Limit of $977,500 for full or partial VA Entitlement situations, the variable is the required down payment. It is a formula based on the VA County Loan Limit, your remaining VA Entitlement, and the home purchase price for partial VA Entitlement scenarios. For VA Multi Unit loans over the 2023 San Diego VA Loan Limit, we can utilize a down payment or equity in the property to satisfy the 25% VA Guarantee requirement, this basically amounts to 25% of the amount over the San Diego County loan limit x 25%, less your charged VA entitlement. Call us to help calculate 760-752-4480.
