I would suggest that you speak to a qualified mortgage broker. They would be able to tell you what you could quality for, as well as if you would be able to use the equity in your home for a down payment. If you currently have a mortgage and want to take out an additional equity loan for a down payment on an investment property a mortgage broker would be able to determine the ratios required.
If you would like my assistance in finding an investment property or if you would like me to refer you to a qualified licensed mortgage broker please feel free to email me at or call/text me at 401-623-1566.
Thank you,
Braodway Real Estate Group LLC

Depending on what kind of situation you're in if you have the ability to occupy the property you could possibly do a 203k.

But you'd have to occupy the property and have it be your primary residence for I believe up to 1 year. But it can be used on multifamily properties as well as singles. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at 401-451-2281. Thank you and good luck. ... more
