Hi, need some guidance. I have found a duplex in Port Wentworth GA, in a area that averages about 1300-1400 per unit at a price point of 379,900 should i house hack with a VA loan or get a fixed 30 year both apr would be at 3.75%. i Am also get 1299 per month in BHA Basic housing allowance from the military. My question is should i leave both sides occupied or kick one out and live in the other side?
Starting out with investing and purchasing a multi-family is a great way to go. VA is a great product. You are required to put down 25% for investor financing, if you are not going to be living in the property.
