Mass Housing, no longer has a 100% program, but if you want to buy in Fall River, I can get you down payment assistance.
USDA still has funds to lend, and their program is 100% financing. The only other program offering 100% financing is VA. If you or a spouse is in or was in the military, this is the loan for you. This is probably the best loan going right now.
Contact me and I will inform you about free down payment assistance programs.

Thanks and good luck

There is also an FDA loan that may apply. Seek the opinion of lender. That is the best place to start for any home search. Start with a local lender then shop National lenders and brokers as they are a good source too.

Only if you are a vet. The VA offers 100% financing

I work as Mortgage Banker based in Mass and this is possible with a few products if you qualify for them. Mass Housing no longer has the 100% option. Feel free to call or email me and I can discuss the available products to see if you would be a fit. Thanks!

No down payment loan are available through Mass Housing but I believe only for purchases in Brockton, Fall River, greater Gardner, New Bedford, North Quabbin, Quincy, Southbridge, Springfield, Taunton, and Worcester.

Mass Housing and the VA both have loans for veterans with no money down (I have one myself). Other than these options, you would have to come up with 3% (Mass Housing) to 3.5% (FHA)down to qualify for a mortgage. You will also need some funds for closing costs, insurance and a few other prepaid items. Keep in mind though, that closing costs can also always be incorporated into an offer so that the seller pays them for you.

My understanding is the only loan available was MA housing with a 720 FICO score and income qualification. However MA Housing I believe lost its funding through Fannie Mae. I can put you in touch with very knowledgeable local lenders that will discuss your options.

Best of luck,

Eric

Yes, it is possible. If you would like to contact me I can put you in touch with someone right in Masschusetts who could possibly get you pre-approved. Let me know if I can help you.
