That depends on how difficult it is to sell your home. If there is enough qualified buyers then you may not want to pay the extra fees required by the lender that a veteran isn't allowed to pay. I've gotten two appraisals by VA appraisers in the last three years and both times the appraiser measured my home and was very critical. Each said that the builder and county had the wrong square footage and that my home was smaller. I've been in some of the other homes in my subdivision that were all built by the same builder and all of them seem to have the same floor plan and be about the same size. Perhaps each one would be found short by a VA appraiser but since my home is compared with them to get a value and none of the others have been measured by that appraiser, it looks like comparing apples to oranges. ... more

Hi Faatima,

The first step is to speak with a lender like me to find out what options are available & what you qualify for.

For example: The home below is just outside the zip code you indicated but it is located in area that is eligible for the No Money Down USDA mortgage!

http://www.trulia.com/property/3233300288-286-Piney-Ln-Newfield-NJ-08344

One of the best things about the USDA program is the monthly mortgage insurance is substantially cheaper than FHA or conventional options.

For example: On an FHA loan of $150,000, the MMI (monthly mortgage insurance) would add $108.41 to your monthly payment but on a USDA mortgage it would only add $44.19!

The other nice thing is USDA will actually allow you to roll in your closing costs as long as the appraised value supports it.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Well the tax situation here in NJ is part of the reason. There are many better areas also to invest in rental homes where it makes sense to buy vs rent. Tom Hinz www.shortsaletosell.com ... more

It can be done but really you are both buying the property together since it is still consider 1 property that is a multifamily. This is different than buying 2 condos or townhouses where you have more flexibility with deeding and title etc...
What you are doing is just specifying how you are managing the property. Your cpa/accountant will be able to allocated the revenue and expenses accordingly once you both meet to explain your plan.
