A reader writes in wondering if others have struggled with financing a live/work unit:
Out of curiosity and based on a recent experience, have you ever heard of people having difficulty closing on a live/work condo? I was recently denied based on the condo being classified by the HOA as live/work despite the zoning being residential.. It’s a shame if this were common, quite a few of the condos in the style we like (i.e. high ceilings/exposed ducts/concrete etc.) are live/work so that would limit our choices considerably.
Any readers have any experience with this?
