What is the address you are looking at? I can check to see if this qualifies for a 100% financing USDA rural loan. Rob, homeloan8@gmail.com

I would start looking for someone willing to do a rent to own. In this case, you would sign a contract and pay a small deposit to give you the option to purchase the home in the future (2 or 3 yeras), at a price you and the owner settle on now. You would then agree in the contract that a portion of the rent you pay during the 2-3 year period would serve as your downpayment toward the home when it is time to buy. When the time to buy arrives at the end of your contract, you must either buy the home then, or lose your initial deposit. Some owners who rent to own are willing to carry the loan for you, so you make payments directly to the owner after you buy.

There are many ways for first time homebuyers, with verifiable income, to buy a home with no money down. Most of these programs have both home price and income limitations. Check with a lender who specializes in first time homebuyers (call or e-mail me if you would like a referral) and ask them about programs such as HiCAP, CHAP, CHDAP, and if you are a teacher or other qualified educational professional ECTP.

If you earn too much for the above programs or are not a first time homebuyer then there are other programs as long and you and the home you are buying qualify for FHA financing. Check out AmeriDream or Nehemiah. You can get 3 - 10% assistance toward your down payment using these programs.

Best of luck to you in finding your perfect home and Dare to Dream.
