Help the community by answering this question:


Call the family and see if you can borrow for at least 4% of the purchase price. You can get financing with little money down, but the $0 down transactions are gone. You will need to pull together some cash to be able to close.

Best wishes,

You need to be aware that the fact that you have just started your job may affect your chances to obtain financing. length of time in current job is a major factor.

When dealing with Foreclosures, banks like to see deposit money and an individual that has pre-approved funding.

So here's wher you start. Be in touch with several loan agents to see what loan options you have. Our second recommendation may take more time than you would like but you need to begin setting money aside for a deposit and other relaited expenses.

Good luck

Alexander, Take your time. Prices are not going up anytime soon.....http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601068&sid=acFX…
so you have some time to decide...

Learn what's available in gov. loans currently.....http://www.govloans.gov/govloans_en.portal?_nfpb=true&_p…

It's a major decision, give it the thought it deserves...

You may be surprised just exactly how many properties are considered "rural housing" and are thereby eligible for the USDA loans. Mr. Roquet is absolutely correct. Your first step is to speak with a lender to see how your credit stacks up, if the homes you like qualify, and to see what types of programs the lender offers that will benefit you. Don't be afraid to call multiple lenders to see if any can provide you with better options. Loans are just like anything else. You can benefit from shopping around.

Good Day!

Depending on the state where you reside and the location of the specific property, you may have a couple options for a no down payment loan program. First, through an approved lender your state may offer a "Bond" program. Secondly, if the property you wish to purchase in an area eligible for a USDA loan, that is another opportunity for a great program that doesn't require a down payment. Your first step will be to speak with a lender regarding loan options and an approval. Once your financing is arranged it will be in your best interest to establish a relationship with a loacal real estate agent. Please feel free to contact me with further questions anytime!
