Is the single family home an investment property? If yes you could use the 1031 exchange process to sell the SF and roll the proceeds into acquiring the multi-family. Have you approached the owner of the multi-family? Perhaps they have an assumable loan, or a large amount of equity and would consider either 100% owner financing or taking back a purchase money note as your down payment.
The single family home was my former primary residence, and is now an investment property.
The owner of the multi-family is bank owned, and i meet with their agent tonight.
I’ll see if I can find information. I’m concerned that my overall Debt / Equity ratio is going to be too high for any additional loans unless I sell the single family. Is this a common problem among investors?
