House Hacking a second home

1 Reply

My husband and I are newbies. We are excited to take the plunge into real estate investing. We are getting our primary home ready to sell so that we can buy/move into a duplex and house hack. However we have come across a single family cash flowing deal that we don't want to pass up. If we purchase this single family investment property now will it hurt us when trying to qualify for an FHA loan on a duplex house hack down the road?


@Crystal Humphries From my understanding, I think it can, depending on what your debt to income ratio would be after purchasing the single-family investment property. It might be best to go over the scenario with your lender and see what they think.
