As for a signature loan, the banker may require a long term CD to secure the signature loan but total loan costs should be less expensive, verify with your personal bank.

Do you know anyone in Eastern NC that will loan under $50,000 to buy a HUD property?

I'm in St Louis, and do loans under $50K. Fortunately, we're a low closing cost state, so easier to stay within federally mandated caps on fees charged to borrowers. Some loan officers shy away from doing smaller loans as their compensation is less, but that's not the way I look at it. Please contact me if you'd like more info.

Ask the Realtor you are working with if they have an affiliate Mortgage Company associated with their office or if they have contacts that lend hard money. Rates may be higher but it may get you into the home!

Last I checked Coldwell Banker Home Loans did loans for under $50,000. I suggest you go online and apply with them. If you need some help with anything else please feel free to contact me. I hope you get what you need.

I just recently di a deal where the purchase price of the house was only $35,000, and it was financed. The catch was that the buyer had to come up with a very significant down payment to the tune of 20% in this case. From what I am seeing lately this is common for these very low loan amount deals. Let me know if I can put you in touch with the lender who put this together to see if it will work for you.

Cydney, the answer may be more than the price of the home. Lenders in the St Louis area do loans at that level all the time, but they also look at your credit rating, debt to income rating, whether the home is worth that amount and much more. I would suggest that you go through one of the Catholic Charities, Beyond Housing or Better Family Life programs - they will help you through the process and if you complete their programs, you may be eligible for additional financing through one of their programs (you don't need to do all 3, chose the one that is closest and most convenient for you). They will also have lists of the mortgage lenders who they work with - I recommend Mark Denny at Cornerstone for most of the buyers I have at this level since he is on all the special financing programs

I know of one who might do it, but the other answers all address the most likely success obtaining a loan of this amount.

1. owner financing
2. your own bank or a credit union
3. private investor

Hello Cydney, I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulty finding a lender to do a loan under $50,000. I work with buyers who have purchased homes of less than this amount and they have had success. If you belong to a credit union, try that as an option. Feel free to contact me and I can provide some suggested lenders.

There is a lender for you.

hello Beverly, didn't expect to come across you here. I have a guy who only has $10,000 cash looking for a house for him and his grandson. I want to be able to look for houses that aren't all HUD/Fannie Mae. REO doesn't offer any loan assistance programs. If you could give me contact info for some lenders that I could give him I'd really appreciate it. See you at the office! DonnaG

Also check with the bank you currently do business with, any smaller community banks, credit unions...

Someone here may be able to suggest a lender who will lend for that amount of money.

Other options include:

--Personal bank loan. The interest rate will be higher and the term shorter, but that's one way.

--Private investors. There are plenty of folks out there willing to invest. Again, the interest rate will be higher. To find private investors, you can look in the "Business Opportunities" section of your newspapers. Or go to meetings of some local real estate investment clubs. You can find a listing, by state, at

--Owner financing. Either screen for properties in which the owner is willing to finance the property, or make offers on properties with the requirement that the owner provide financing. There are a few other techniques that might work, such as a "wrap" mortgage--in which the seller wraps his/her current mortgage with your mortgage. A real estate lawyer can explain that to you.

--Friends and relatives. Some of them might be willing to lend you the money.

Hope that helps.
