Real estate while in college

1 Reply

I’m a college student and I’m very interested in getting involved in real estate while in school because of the long term wealth it can generate. I was thinking about buying a home as an owner occupant and renting it out to a few friends. I’m trying to soak up as much information as I can about this, as it is a fairly common strategy. I’ve heard the down payment for an owner occupant can be extremely low, but would I need a parent to be a co-signer? Also, I would just like more information about the process of doing this, so article, video, or book recommendations would be greatly appreciated along with general advice. Thanks

I'm also a college student looking to do a very similar thing. I found out about FHA loans where if the owner lives in the property for a year they only have to put 3.5% down. The only thing is I think you need to have a certain credit score to qualify and have a constant flow of income from a job. Just a quick suggestion you can look into more. Good Luck!
