Mixed-use properties may be combined office/living space for a variety of businesses – from attorneys to retailers – or residential units attached to parking.
It’s an attractive opportunity for small business owners, as they can buy their primary residence and invest in commercial property with a residential loan.
Mixed-use properties featuring one- to four- residential, single-family units single are eligible for FHA financing if they follow these guidelines:
- At least 51% of the entire building’s square footage must be for residential use
- The commercial use will not affect the residents’ health and safety of the occupants of the residential property
- Use of the commercial portion of the property must be legally permitted and conform to current zoning requirements
