Help the community by answering this question:


Good evening, Sixmile.
There are several options for qualified first time home buyers for low/no down payment loans. Most loans with little to no money down INCLUDING USDA have PMI, but at this time, it PMI is deductible like interest. There are other options for down payment and closing cost assistance. Once you have financing figured out, it will be best to find a real estate professional who is a good negotiator to make sure you purchase the home you want on the terms that fits your finances and your lender approval. It is possible in today's market to walk in with a bit of equity if we negotiate well. If you appreciate an answer, please give "thumbs up".

USDA is a great program-just be sure the home you are looking at qualifies for USDA financing.

Even if you're not a veteran you may be eligible for a VA Loan through the VA Vendee Finance program for qualified properties.

I'd love to explain further. You're welcome to contact me directly any day of the week to answer your mortgage and real estate questions.

Good luck.

The only two programs I know of that you may qualify for depending onw here you are buying is the USDA loan (which you are getting recommended for) and VA loan. To qualify for the VA loan you need to be a veteran of the military.

Those are the only two no money down programs I know of right now...

Are you eligible for a VA loan? If so, that's your best loan program.

Otherwise, even with USDA, you will pay some form of MI. However, if your income qualifies, it is a fantastic loan program and one of the best ways to finance a home.

Good afternoon, SixMile Jarvo:
Are you still in the market? If so, while minimum credit score requirements have risen at many lenders, we still can find financing at 600+ middle credit if you meet the criteria in the Trulia Blog "I have bad credit and no savings. Can I get a home or am I stuck renting?" If you appreciate this answer, please give it a "thumbs up", or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a "best answer" click .

Contact me directly and I'll put you in front of my very knowledgable lender. Do you currently have a buyer's agent on your side? If not, let me know and I'd love to help you with negotiations - it doesn't cost you anything extra in the transaction.
