It is doubtful anyone from Trulia will read your post here, try contacting Customer Service. By the way, sites such as Trulia get syndicated foreclosure info from other sources, so bad info in, bad info out.... more
Owning a home is a very rewarding feeling. However coming up with the down payment can be tough for some people. My advice to you would be to contact a local lender to see what you qualify for and to see the different loan programs they offer. There are some 100% financing programs out there that might work for you.
The best of luck to you.

There is no easy way to answer this question. Just like everyone's definition of a 'good thing' is different, so is every experience with a bank-owned home. There are pros and cons to purchasing a bank-owned property and it depends on your individual situation. I have worked with many foreclosed properties and I would be happy to share my experience with you. Feel free to PM me and we can further discuss this.

It can be one of the places you search for a home, but I would recommend you connect with a qualified Buyer's Agent from your local area to best represent your interests. They can help you navigate through the numerous steps, documents, and procedures Fannie Mae requires for purchasing homes through homepath.com. Good luck to you!... more

The only program I've heard of is the Philly Home Buy Program. Your Employer would have to be a participant in the program too. You can ask questions at 215-683-2126 to get more information.
WITHOUT A GRANT:
In general, a FHA Loan would require only 3.5% down of the purchase price of the house.
For Example: $80,000 home purchase would require $2800 down payment.
Closing Costs: Normally, a Buyer can ask for a Seller Assist from the Seller of the house to help you pay your closing costs.
You can possibly buy with $5,000 Total with a Seller Assist.
Even with a 1st Time Buyer Program, you will have some amount of your own cash available.
