Kim,
There are absolutely 100% financing options available, as well as programs to help you with closing costs. These are my specialty.

Please take a quick look at these entries from my blog that detail what types of 100% financing are available as well ways you can get money for closing costs. The types of 100% financing that are available today have definitely been changing, and it's important to make yourself aware that there ARE other options besides just 100% financing on one loan with monthly mortgage insurance.

There are fewer and fewer mortgage compaies that will fund less than 5% down. Contacting direct lenders like the Chase Home Mortgage, Bank of America, etc. is a good place to start. Bank of America is looking for 5% down as of 2 weeks ago.

Sure there are - one you might try is Century 21 Mortgage at toll free 866-646-6322 (tell them that Team One at Century 21 H T Brown gave you their special number)
Or Neal Tipton at 888-396-8287 (Allied Home Mortgage Capital Corporation)
or at least now FHA has become popular again with only 3% down and lots of options of seller contributions - its worth a look today!

Good Luck

YES! In my opinion, assuming good credit, this may be the best time ever for a first time homebuyer. It is very easy to negiotiate seller help at this time. Make sure you choose a realtor that is experienced. The financing is the easy part.

Hi Kim:

There may be. There can also be seller help. The best thing way to find out is to talk to one. I can put you in touch with one if you'd like. You are under no obligation and it can be started with a phone call.
