Good Evening Moodie, Yes it is Possible.

It would be better for you... if we can confidentially talk. There is allot of options to go over with you.

Can we confidentially talk?

Our Son Graduated from Temple U + we did the same thing.

It is definitely possible and a lot of people are doing the same thing. You need to find yourself a good agent, mortgage loan officer and should talk to your tax professional. Feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concern.

The first step is to find agent to work with. Then you and you agent can plan and discuss with other professionals ie: CPA, Mortgage Professional how much you will need for fees, closing cost, down payments. This will require planning and working together. Just remember You will be hiring these professionals to HELP you make the RIGHT and BEST dissensions for what you want to do.

Your daughter may qualify to purchase on her own if she is employed right out of college. Most lenders require 2 years work experience but in the case of a recent college graduate they do not have the same requirements. Just a thought. Your daughters buying power may be greater than if you were to apply for a second home. Also, she would not be required to put the same 20-25% that is typically required on an investment property. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I just helped a recent graduate purchase after his first month of employment.

I'd consult with your attorney and CPA on the following: how to take title (JTWROS or TIC and subsequent equity breakdown); gifting; mortgage or not; will daughter be lessee; deduction analysis. Good Hunting!

It is absolutely possible. It does depends on a few factors though. Are you purchasing it with a mortgage? If so what is your debt to income ratio? Are you just gifting her the down payment and closing cost? If so what her credit, etc.? Are you paying cash? Contact me so we can discuss all of the scenarios that come into play.
