If you don't mind living in a suburb or rural area, check out USDA Rural Development's direct and insurance loan programs. Both programs require 0 down payment, so you could use your savings for closing costs and/or repairs. There are income restrictions and a debt-to-income ratio. No PMI on either program, but a one-time guaranteed fee on the insured RD program that is deductible. Go to:… and click on the tabs to the right side. The "Find Eligibility" tab works better with Firefox than Explorer. If you decide to buy a home through this program in Westmoreland County, please contact me:

Your main problem, as Allan says, is the very low amount. You'd be talking about a mortgage of $16,000. The cut-off usually is around $50,000. Talk to your Realtor, but there are other ways to finance such a small loan.

Good luck.

Should be no problem BUT some Banks do not do loans under a certain amount. Best of Luck
