That depends on your credit score, your debt, your income, what price range you are looking in, and many many other factors. I would talk to a local banker and see if they have any loans that you can get. If not, ask them how to plan for a purchase in the future and follow their direction. Before long, you will be able to buy something.

Pegtillyadead,

You must put some money down. In order to make your Offer legally binding it must have "consideration" = money.

With that being said - there are 100% finance options, depending on your credit. They involve 2 loans 70/30% or 80/20% to avoid PMI there are also USDA loans of 100% depending on location and availability of USDA funds.

Please give me a call at 978-337-1237 and I will be happy to send you in the direction of a couple loan officers to speak with.

If you're not working with a Buyer Agent, I live in Leominster and do cover West Boylston as well.
