I'm also planning on staying in school another 4 years for pharmacy school. I would like to know if they will pre-calculate my loan payments (from the amount I currently have borrowed) when I apply. I am also wondering if I would be able to use the other side of the duplex as income if it's already rented when I buy. I've heard you can't do that anymore but I don't know if it is true or not.<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 30 Sep 2013 03:38:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Will-the-banks-consider-my-school-loans-if-I%27m-still-in-school-and-not-required-to-pay-back-yet/513493/ 2013-09-30T03:38:00Z investment in rental properties in Memphis http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/investment-in-rental-properties-in-Memphis/418924/ I am looking to create a portfolio of rental properties in Memphis.
