Help the community by answering this question:


As a disabled Vet, you would be qualified for a 100% VA loan, and the seller would be allowed to pay all of your closing costs and prepaids (assuming the house would appraise for that price.) Qualification depends on income, credit scores, and VA eligibility. If he has a 30% or greater disability, you should ask for the Texas Vet benefit to lower the interest rate.
If you found an assumption, the answers below stating that it would take some cash to get closed is probably correct. A purchase would get you the zero move in.
I suggest you discuss your prequalification with a licensed mortgage loan officer.
Good luck!

You will need to speak to your bank first to confirm that you can qualify for an assumable loan. Then the current home must be occupied by a Veteran who is willing to sell with no money down. This will be difficult to find as most home owners sell their equity (if they have any). Speak with the VA and see if they are aware of any homes that are assumable. I don't see many of these.

Wish I had better news for you!

Never do this.
It's a great way to get in trouble.
You can get a VA loan with no money down with a decent credit score.
Check with your bank to see if you can get prequalified for a loan.
