Can I get a 100% loan?

Asked by Jonathan, Orlando, FL Mon Jan 28, 2008

My wife and I are considering buying a home this summer in the Orlando metro area. We are looking in the 200-300K range. We have above 700 credit scores and steady employment. Are there any 100% 30 yr fixed financing options? If not, what minimum down payment do we need to come up with.

There are 3 low down payment choices that are becoming popular with buyers.
FHA - 2.25% down
VA - 0% down must be a vet with eligibility
US Rural Development - 0% down - house must be in an eligible area
check USDA website with address, most metro ares are excluded, suburbs may not be

Look into Fixed 30 year loan, no downpayment, no closing cost. We are going through this program right now.

Good luck!

Mycommunity/homepossible is 0 down but have income limits.
FHA is 2.25% down ...and their loan limit maybe up to 362k for your area.
VA is zero down..and goes up to 417k

I would go with the FHA as the rates are as low as 5.5% Today

Simple answer is YES, there are still 100% financing options out there. If you are eligible for VA financing it's no problem. There are also conventional programs that still do 100%, most requiring Mortgage insurance, but there are a few that do not require any.

Your best bet is to contact a knowlegable Loan Officer or Mortgage broker. I always reccomend a particular Officer at Wachovia mortgage. He is currently closing 1 near 100% deal with no MI, and another 100% deal with 0 MI. His link is below

Based on your profile so far, absolutely! The only other caveat would be debt to income ratio. I would be happy to discuss your options. You can reach me at 386-882-5699 or by email at I look forward to hearing from you.
