Hi Lucy,

Even under those circumstances you still may be able to qualify for a loan. I have a client who is in a similar situation as yours and we just got them a loan. We are currently in escrow now on a home that got accepted and will be closing by month end. Let me know if you need further assistance.

I know of a loan program that can help first time homebuyers with the downpayment and it is not expiring anytime soon so, feel free to contact me and good luck to you.

There are now but most will be going away October 1st. Talk to your real estate agent and mortgage loan officer immediately so that you can take advantage of these programs before they are gone. If you are a Veteran, there is no hurry as those programs will continue after October 1.

Depending on your credit, income, desired home location, employment etc. there are programs available from LA & surrounding cities, LA County, the state and even the federal govt that could help you out. Working with a Realtor and Lender who specialize in First Time Home Buyers will help you to identify which programs might work for you. Let me know how I can help and Dare to Dream.

In the current "new" market it is difficult to get a loan without a down payment, however, there may be state housing assistance program money available or "grant money" from local groups that may be able to help you with the down payment. There are usually earning limits and residency requirements to qualify. Not every agent will have an understanding of these programs so it is important for you to ask a local agent if they specialize in first time home buyer programs and have knowledge of local programs that you may qualify for.

Hi Lucy... Lender guidelines are very tight now. With that said, there are many down payment assistance programs still available to assist first time home buyers with their down payment. Congress just passed legislation prohibiting seller funded down payment assistance but your city may have some programs available to help you. Check with a mortgage broker in your area.
