Lacurls, Both Buyer and Seller in 22079

My husband and I own a home; but we also want to buy a townhouse for our son; are there any legal restrictions in VA in owning multiple properties?

There are no restrictions what so ever regarding the number of properties you can own in VA. What great parents!!

No legal restrictions to buy for a family member. You will buy the home as an investment property -and will have to put down between 20 and 30 percent.

Lenders will consider this an investment property - even though you are buying for a family member.

The larger the down payment - the lower the fees and closing costs.

Besides the large cash outlay - there are few restrictions.

Good Luck!
