I'm 22 - can I buy a duplex or quadplex?Hi, I'm 22, married. College has been too expensive for me to afford by myself, no family support in the financial department, and I am lucky to be employed at a call center that pays a very decent wage with plenty of overtime, telecommuting. However, I don't want to work here for my entire life.I would like to start investing in property.However, I'm under the impression that a first time home buyer, without at least stellar credit and 20% down, can't purchase any kind of investment property. While my credit is pretty good and getting better, I don't have the means to save a 40k down payment. I would really like to buy a duplex, triplex or quadplex where I can live in a single unit and manage the others to pay for my mortgage. From there, I could move on to buying other properties as time goes on.Is this possible? How can I make this a reality?Thanks!KaylaJuly 08 - Denver1YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
