I have heard of some instances, but you have to have excellent credit and it is rare. The $8,000 credit helps too.

Best of luck,

I am a mortgage broker in Irvine, and I can tell you that there are a couple pf programs that have 100% finanicing still available.

If you were in the military, a VA Loan would work out well for you.

Also, there are SEVERAL cities in San Diego County that USDA is eligible for as well, with 100% finanicing.

I would recommed you sit down with a trusted Mortgage Broker and discuss your options.

I am a mortgage broker. If I can be of service, please let me know!

Hello Eva,

I believe that 100% financing, at least here in Maine, still exist for first time home buyers through USDA-Rural Development and I would suspect that it is available elsewhere. This loan also depends on the area you're looking in and if they will do the financing. I would check out their site at and search for your local office.

If you have some military background, a VA loan offers 100% financing.

I am not aware of any other programs which can do it. A lot of the down payment assistance programs which were once available, no longer exist. However, this is a great question for a loan officer who may know of some other possibilities.

Please contact Stacy Hunjadi of Met Life Home Loans at 760-479-2836 or to confirm.
