How much in reserves required for FHA 203k loan on owner-occupied duplex?

Asked by Evettepc, Indianapolis, IN Tue May 15, 2012

I'm in the process of buying my first home (a duplex - living on one side, renting the other) Upon closing, aside from the down payment and closing costs, how much is required in liquid reserves? My mortgage broker is saying 6 months, but I'm reading FHA requires no reserves, or up to 3 months only if it's a 3 or 4-plex. (Mine is a 2-unit). Any insight would be appreciated!

I would ask your Realtor who is working on helping you purchase the duplex. They should be your first go to. Best of luck.
