So the condo development itself is composed of only two units or is the condo a 2 unit condo?

If you're talking FHA or conventional it would be difficult for a two unit condo to meet their requirements. But I don't want to be presumptious so you should ask the managing agent if they are FHA or Fannie Mae approved.

I have specialty products for condos that don't rely on FHA or Fannie Mae's guidelines. For more information or for assistance, I can be reached directly at 917.699.0183, via email Follow me on twitter @mdenniston247.

I value your feedback. Please hit the thumbs up or best answer button, if my response was helpful.
