@Joshua Hilliard You might want to consider using your VA to purchase a 4 unit. I'm not sure on Piscataway, but the loan limits on VA and FHA in DC are over 1.2 Mil since we are in a high cost of living area. That means you can purchase a residential multi with a very cheap loan. If you have a lot of equity in your DC home, you might consider selling and buying a larger commercial multi near campus. I would also line up some property managers if you are considering renting the property. It will be difficult to manage your property out of state.
