What uni are you planning goin to? if you decide to go to Akron OHIO let me know i’ll hook you up ;). But for the advice part, all you have to do is find the place and go shopping for a lender. since you dont have that much income tell him you want it to be a STATED income, OWNER OCCUPIED and since its only a 2 unit, it will be the same as buying a SFR. Its no big deal as everyone starting out thinks it is. Just go talk to a broker or some lenders and tell them what you want to do. Try to aim for 100% financing and if not, ask your mom to give you a gift of 5% of purchase price.
