Hire an exclusive buyer agent first, if you can find one in your area. Visit for a referral. If you can't find an EBA, a full-time, experienced buyer's agent is the next best thing.

If you are your husband are eligible veterans, then VA financing could be possible and that doesn't require any down payment.

If you are purchasing in an eligible rural area then there is USDA Rural Housing financing which doesn't require a down payment. Some examples of eligible areas around Kansas city, MO would be Excelsior Springs, Smithville, and Pleasant Hill.

Conventional financing requires a 3% down payment.

FHA financing requires a 3.5% down payment (although if you purchase a home being sold by HUD, it may be eligible for only a $100 down payment).

Missouri has a state run down payment assistance program at which will provide a 2nd mortgage up to 3% of the sales price to assist with the down payment requirement for FHA financing, leaving you to come up with the remaining .5% of the down payment that FHA requires. There are purchase price & income limits though, see the link for full details.

Hope this information helps. Feel free to ask more questions.

Linda Anderson answered:
Hi Cyn, It would probably be your best interest to sell due to the rates being good at this time. You could get at least 3 Realtor's to do a market analysis on your home to get your home at market price. Another option is lease with option to buy, ask for a percentage down, a credit report employment status and a time when they will apply for the mortgage to actually buy, possibly 2 years . When interviewing agents ask to either list your home or lease it for you ask questions on how they handle their properties such as how often do they check the property. The area, condition of the home and age of home have factors in how much and how quick your house might sell. Since you are moving out of state its wise to check out a Realtor who is familiar with leasing properties as well as selling them.
I hope this helps

Kevin Pellatiro answered:
Yes, owner terms are available on some of the homes in our area. Depending on what you have in mind, and the price range that works best for you, the down payment requirements will vary (maybe 5%, maybe not). Be prepared to show the ability to provide a fair amount down, and attractive terms for the prospective home sellers as there is a certain risk to carrying the note for the property that they will want to offset. ... more
