If you qualify for a VA mortgage you do not have to put anything down. When you sell your current house then you can prepay the mortgage for a lower amount. A FHA mortgage will allow you just to put down 3.5% but you would have to refi to get rid of the mortgage insurance when you sell your current house.

You may have to pay "loan shark" rates and fees to get a 100% mortgage.

Try a credit union, they do not have to fit you into the "exact" criteria that would allow a lender to immediately sell off your mortgage. You see, most banks and lenders do not keep your mortgage longer than a day after you close.

If your current house is worth less than $150k it should pretty much fly out the door in our current market. Properties under $100k are getting 10-20 ALL CASH offers within 48 hours if they make sense as a rental.

If you want to verify what the actual sales are for similar homes to yours, your Realtor can give you a listingbook account. If you're not already working with a Realtor, you can sign up for a free Listingbook account on my website:

Traski, given the market conditions, and your desire to sell your home, it is strongly suggested that you secure a contract on your present home first before purchasing another one.

Going through the pre approval mortgage process can occur at any time. This process will allow you to see your credit, income and assets through the eyes of a lender. Sometimes this view will quickly provide you with areas that need improving to secure a mortgage loan.

Yes the home inventory is low, however, before you are responsible for two mortgages, best to seriously consider working on selling your property first.

Yes, actually there is a lender that will do a 90-10 (100% loan)

The purpose is to avoid PMI so this wouldn't work. We would pay the second mortgage off when our current house is sold.
