Standard commercial loans are usually 25+% down. Now if you go the bridge loan route or other similar loan you may need less down payment but you will pay more in fees and interest. Do some research before jumping into a commercial property specially SRO's. I would speak with a trusted lender and local rental broker to get a feel for the marketability of the units. Good luck!

Hello Wendy,
that type of building is considered a commercial building. Usually, in a commercial mortgage the down payment is anywhere between 25%-40% depending on your credit, the building, and many other factors. I suggest you speak to a commercial mortgage broker. I would be happy to give you a referral if you need one. My company Home New York has an excellent commercial department that can help you find the building or if you are considering any other future investments.
Please let me know how I can be of assistance.
