Buying Multi-Family as Your First Home

Show Notes

A Multi-Family residence, also known as a duplex, triplex or fourplex, is a powerful investment strategy for forward thinking first time home buyers.

I am surprised that more people don’t know that you can buy a multi-family home with only 3.5% down payment, live in one of the units, have your renters make your mortgage payment, take 100% of the tax deductions, and keep 100% of the equity earned.

In this episode, Josh and Scott dig deep into this smart strategy using a FHA mortgage to a multi-family, owner occupied investment home.
