First of all, unless you want to live in the Everglades, the 100% USDA loan is not an option are you'd have to live quite a ways west of Hwy 95.
Second, I'm assuming you're not prior military or you'd be very aware of the 100% VA loan.
There is a 100.00 down FHA program, but its on spacific properties and not likley you'll find one you'll like in the area you wish to live.
The next lowest down pament loan is 3% down. This is NOT an FHA loan that requires 3.5% down, it does NOT have the 1.75% FHA financed MIP fee and does NOT have the monthly Mortgage Insurance payment.

can best be thought of as " Up-Front Costs" ! Essentially 3 parts!
There would usually be a " Downpayment " ( your contibution to the
Purchase Price) most financing has some required %
There are " closing Costs " for Legal work and Title Searches,
lender's fees, Recording fees,etc.
Third would entail " fees paid outside of Closing " POC
These are items such as pre-payments for Insurance,
Appraisal fees, Mortgage Application Fees, Inspection
fees for "Home inspection" , Pest Infestation,and the like.
These are costs to you. The professionals you choose
will give you a clear picture of how far your $'s wil go!
and how a deal would be structured.
I would recomend a " sit down" with both a Mortgage Lender,
and a Local Agent to get an idea of what is "reasonable and
Customary. Contact me directly for more. Glad to help!

In terms of mortgage downpayments, you will first want to determine what kind of mortgage you qualify for. Your best source for that is a reliable mortgage banker. Call Preston Ware at 561-329-0075 or go to PrestonWare.com
Your monthly mortgage payments will vary based upon the type of mortgage you obtain and the price of the home in West Palm Beach that you purchase.

If you do not have the money saved for a down payment, it is most likely that now is not the right time for you to buy.
There are exceptions and you may be one.
Here is what I would recommend.
Get your finances in order so that you will be ready, able and willing to buy the house you want, NOT the house you think you can afford today. Start with consulting with a local lender. A lender who has a history of investing in the community. These are 'A' And "B' graded lenders. The big banks, who rob the community through late fees and add on charges, you will discove,r are "F" graded lenders.
When you consult with an "A" or "B" graded lender, let them know your home purchase plans. If you do not have an idea regarding the price of a home that meets your requirements, a real estate pro can help.
The local lender will advise you regarding how to be financially prepared with the right level of debt and sufficient savings. The plan they lay out will also have a time line that will indicate when you should start looking seriously for a home. Simply enter your city or zip code and select the "A" or "B" graded lender of your choice.
