Breaking News: FHA Changes Make Financing ADUs Easier! A Game-Changer for Homebuyers!


Did you hear the latest news from the Federal Housing Administration about financing ADUs, which stands for Additional Dwelling Units?

In the past, lenders couldn't consider rental income from these ADUs, making it tough for buyers unless they were all-cash purchasers.
