Hello, My wife and I are considering buying our first house. She works part time in new Rochelle, but she is considering quitting to focus full time on her therapist job, that at the moment is completely remote, but if she starts going back to the office it would be in mamorenek. We are considering westchester area (or somewhere north of Bronx) or early Long Island, depending on where I end up working next year.
We are considering buying a live in duplex, and rent the second unit. probably FHA with low down payment. For what I’ve seen, our budget (500k) would buy a pretty crappy small duplex. Anybody with experience in NY?
