Homebuyers and Real Estate Agents often don’t realize that FHA allows a Borrower to co-sign as the **Non Occupant** Co-Borrower on an unlimited number of FHA loans.

Really? Yes Really.

Even though, unless there are special circumstances,  (like a forced job relocation or sudden and dramatic increase in family size) a homebuyer can really only have one FHA loan at any given time, someone who doesn’t intend to occupy the property can cosign/co-borrow with the buyer(s) that *do* intend to occupy the property without such a limitation.

Better still, FHA allows the total incomes and debts of all the borrowers to be blended together to arrive at one (overall) debt ratio.

This feature has enabled many a homebuyer who couldn’t properly document all of their income for example, to qualify for a home loan when their income alone wasn’t sufficient for qualifying purposes.
