Our house is a 2 family. We live in the 2brm apt with everything on the first level. The 3brm upstairs can be rented for 65-90% of our mortgage. I wish I'd been as Foolish as you when I bought my first house. Good going!SS Let's try this again...We were all set to buy a 3brm/1family until I read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". I know a lot of that book is garbage, but the part where he states "A house is just a liability unless it makes money for you." just really rang true to me. For less than 40% more we got twice as much house, only one block away. We have the flexibility of renting it out for income and/or expanding our living space without having to move. For us the flexibility was key.
