YES you can depending on the type of loan and terms you qualify for. Start first with a local loan officer, that's knowledgeable about all the different type of programs in your area.

Hi Alejandro,
Would would just need to have your Buyer's Agent submit an offer for you to the Lsiting Agnent. The minimum down payment will be determined by the loan program, the type of occupancy, and your qualifications as a borrower.

Only two 100% Financing programs are currently available. One of which is the VA loan program. VA financing is only available for eligible veterans. The second 100% option is USDA financing. USDA loans do have geographic restrictions to rural areas though.

For FHA and FHA 203K mortgages, the minimum down payment is 3.5%. That down payment can be from the borrower’s own funds or a gift from a family member.

Conventional mortgages typically require at least 5% down for a primary residence. Any conventional mortgage with less than a 20% down payment will require monthly mortgage insurance. Second homes will require at least 10% down while investment properties will require at least a 20% down payment.

Fannie Mae offers special HomePath Financing for eligible HomePath properties. It is only 3% down for primary residence and 10% down for Second Homes and Investment properties. For someone owning 5-10 financed properties, a 25% down payment will be required for Second Homes and Investment properties. Those owning 11-20 financed properties would need a 30% down payment to purchase any additional Investment properties.

It will most likely be pretty hard to buy a home for $50,000 with less than 20% down. I would try to talk with some mortgage professionals and see if they can help you.

yes, if you qualify for an FHA or VA mortgage or if the house is in an area where you can get a USDA loan. Talk with a local lender or mortgage broker for details and to get prequalified.
