A lot of the underlying math and modeling is the same, for multifamily you are just generally dealing with different debt terms, more tenants, and different operating expenses, but understanding how to model your purchase, cap-ex, expected income, op-ex, debt, equity (if you go in with partners), etc. should be very similar. It would definitely be useful if you graduate from investing in SFH rentals to small apartment buildings, like a 5-8 plex, since lenders see anything over 4 units as "commercial multifamily" and underwrite loans differently. SFH lending (standard 30 yr mortgage) looks at your income but as far as the asset goes they only look at LTV, commercial lenders look at LTV and debt service (DSCR) since they know you won't be paying the mortgage out of your own income but the rental income.
