  1. Hi David. I was searching for information about financing for fourplex investments in Los Angeles and came across your blog. You focus on 2-4 unit residential income properties “mostly because financing opportunities are better.” I understand financing for 5+ units is considered commercial and 4 units and smaller is considered residential. But if you care to explain more about why financing opportunities on 2-4 units are better, I’ll find it interesting. Are they higher leverage, better rates, longer fixed-rate periods, or other? Thanks.

      Yes to all of those reasons, Andy. Residential loans offer higher leverage (75% versus 50%-65%), better rates (varies), and longer fixed-rate periods (30 years versus 5 or 7).
