   Partner with like minded investors and you put down payment, and they take loan on their name and structure a deal that works for both. 

Other options include,  occupy a duplex as renter in one unit, and eventually talk to landlord to sell ( possibly with owner financing). An Idea and if it works, its a deal for you. 

Good luck. 


@Madan Anand

You need to find a lender who can go stated based on the rental income only and then the property would just need to qualify.  There are lenders like this but the rates are not the best.  Not necessarily hard money, but you're def not going to get a 4-6% interest rate.

@Naveen Desai also gave some sound advice about either finding a partner or living in one unit and renting other.
