At H3 First Investments we are only interested in funding projects that will give you the best opportunity at realizing success. Therefore our criteria is centered around these 5 points:

*Higher credit scores (680+), and down payment (20% or more) trumps 3,4 and 5.


Homes above the FHA cap are statistically more likely to experience drastic fluctuations in value and can be more susceptible to local and overall market depreciation. Homes in the 5-point realm tend to be more resilient to these influences.

Why 1-4 Units?

This is important. When you invest within these parameters, you can attract a larger segment of the market, including FHA buyers. This increases your ability to appeal to more people in more demographics.

Why a smaller home with no more than 5 bedrooms and 3 baths?

Millennials and Boomers are the two segments expected to dominate the market in the next five years. Both of these segments are looking at smaller homes: Millennials because they’re just starting out; Boomers because they’re downsizing. Candace Taylor of The Wall Street Journal wrote, “These days, buyers of all ages eschew the large, ornate houses… in favor of smaller, more modern-looking alternatives.”

Why price your home at or below FHA requirements?

FHA loans bring home ownership into reach for first-time home buyers who might have a hard time getting approved with conventional lenders. This increases your ability to sell your property faster and broadens your ability to attract more potential buyers.

Why less than 1/2 acre?

Both Boomers and Millennials are looking for less upkeep: Boomers because they’re getting older and Millennials because they’re just starting out. More acreage also means more expense.
