Can a buy and a residential home that's in a business zone?

First time investor: Wanting to buy a house listed on HUD homestore. Just checked zoning as it is on a busy street and house is listed in a business zone. There was another house adjacent to property in question currently with occupants that is also zoned commercial. Will it be possible to purchase to rent for residential use?

Obviously, I have no idea what the zoning is for this particular property

However, what I do know is that since this is a HUD home, the previous buyer obtained an FHA loan. To do that, the property must have been zoned for residential use and it had to be owner occupied
