HUD 223(f) loans offer incredibly generous terms-- including 35-year, fully amortizing, fixed-rate financing, and nearly unbeatable leverage. But what kinds of properties can be financed with a HUD 223(f) loan? In general, properties must have 5+ units, and each unit must have a complete kitchen and bathroom. Independent living seniors housing properties are allowed, but assisted living properties are not. Student housing properties are permitted, but only if rented by the unit, not by the bed or room.
