Multi family means there is more than one residence in a single building, like a row home that has been divided into two apartments.

So a duplex or triplex where the whole building is for sale would be listed as a multi-unit. If only one of the residences in that building is for sale it would likely be listed as a condo.

No common areas are shared, there would be completely separate living areas. Multi units are appealing for many buyers, especially if you plan to occupy one of the units in the building. The rents you get from the other units would help pay your mortgage and as long as there are 4 units or less, you can finance it with a residential mortgage. Over 4 units is considered commercial and would require commercial financing.

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

Hi CMYeager,

Using FHA Lending would require only 3.5% of the amount of your loan as a down payment. Conventional financing could range between 5% down and 20% down.

I work with a lot of qualified Loan Officers.

Please contact me with your residential real estate questions in the near future!

That home was for rent. It was already leased. There are many homes available for purchase in the Olde City area. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.

I'd be happy to send you available listings that may meet your preferences.

Have a great day. Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

All the best,
