Live In Your Own Rental Building in West Town

Smart Life Investment

Did you know that you can actually live in your real estate investment property?

Owning a rental property and living in it can be an excellent way to reduce your monthly mortgage payment outlay, while building home equity for your future. And, you can even do it as a first-time home buyer, if you plan ahead. The key is to purchase a home with 2-units, 3-units, or 4-units -- none more, and none less.

Homes with 2-4 units can be financed as residential mortgages, which means you get access to "regular" mortgage rates; and properties can be purchased no matter if you're currently renting a home or owning one.

You'll also get access to larger loan sizes because loan limits for multi-unit homes are higher than for 1-unit properties.
