You can own as many homes as you would like to handle in your portfolio. Your means of purchasing the properties will determine how many you can purchase. If you are paying cash you are only limited by the amount you wish to allocate toward this type of endeavor. If you wish to purchase through a lender then you would need to find one which will accommodate your needs. Jo Baxter 832-205-1226 is a lender who has a program where an investor can have up to 10 homes in their loan portfolio where most I believe have a limit of 3 to 5 homes.

Go for it. As many as you can handle. Cash purchaser. Loan Companies will look at your P & L .
You must tell the truth about your purchase intentions if borrowing money but otherwise this is a great time to purchase. Foreclosures and HUD owned properties are in better shape than ever because unfortunately for the folks losing them, there are people loosing their homes that normally would not be loosing them are they are better taken care of.

I don't think there is a magic number. As long as you can obtain financing and insurance then you should be able to have all you would like. BUT lets see what everyone else says.

I had a client that has 6 not including their personal home.
