If you are going to have your son in one unit and a friend in the other.. I would be more concerned with location then cap rate. In Southern CA.. most income properties rarely make a lot of financial sense but the appreciation for a multi-residential zoned property in a good area is usually excellent...good cap rates are usually not found in areas where you would like to have your child living... I would buy in the best location I could afford.. I would also check with a lender who knows small unit financing.. and be prepared to run a deficit for a bit.. I would contact.. Brian Brady.. @ http://brian-brady.com.. he knows a lot about this type of financing and can offer you the best advice about ways to financially structure the transaction.. Hope this is helpful..

He is very experienced in this type of loan and is not to mention a savvy businessman. Please let me know if I can assist you as I live and work in Sherman Oaks for over 10 years. (818)422-1702

My son and his wife would live in one of the units and his friend and his wife would live in another of the units.

Leslie.. I don't believe you will find what your are looking for with only 10% down anywhere in Los Angeles County at this time. If you are planning to live in one of the units it might make more sense.. You may want to discuss this with a professinal in your area who knows the small income unit market.
