Seizing New Opportunities: Fannie Mae Reduces Down Payment Requirements for Multifamily Homes

We’re excited to bring you some game-changing news that is set to reshape the landscape of real estate investment. Fannie Mae has recently unveiled a groundbreaking policy shift that dramatically reduces down payment requirements for owner-occupied 2-, 3-, and 4-unit homes. Commencing from the weekend following November 18, 2023, the down payment for these properties will be a mere 5%, marking a significant drop from the previous 15-25% requirement for duplexes, triplexes, and four-plexes.

Industry experts are buzzing with enthusiasm, foreseeing increased affordability and a surge in real estate investments. This move by Fannie Mae is a game-changer, creating a golden opportunity for individuals aspiring to invest in multifamily residences while reaping the benefits of homeownership.
