Hey New Casa

USDA is zero down, VA zero down and many states officer assistance and grants to help with the down payment required by FHA and conventional loans.
Suggestion for you; gather up all the information you can and than find yourself an experienced ethincal loan officer who works for a lender that offers all of the loan types.
You will find an artilce on no money down loans at and an artilce, Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers. Also be sure to read about the MCC tax credit.You will also find a link to your states grants and assistance.
After you have gathered all of your information you will find loan officers and real estate agents in your area on Trulia offering their services. A very good source.
Best of Luck, Stephen

Unless there is some non-monetary consideration, the ONLY fair way is to match the contribution of equity. Sometimes if the property is being improved/developed, one party may contribute more labor, etc. and this can adjust equity.

Here in Southern Nevada there are several active lifestyle communities. The cost of living is also considerably less than most of California. The communities of Anthem and MacDonald Ranch in Henderson as well as Summerlin in Las Vegas are options. Please contact me directly and I will be glad to get you additional information on these communities.

I'm not certain what the plan is . Our non profit organization is working with several solutions to this issue . We are currently working with employers on an employer assisted housing program that helps workforce families , the real stakeholders in our communities obtain the dream of homeownership . We provide First time homebuyer education , counseling and downpayment assistance as well as foreclosure prevention programs and rental assistance . The employer can improve his bottom line buy reducing recruiting and retention costs . The community is blessed with a grateful homeowner and it creates a cycle of housing sustainability . All at little or no cost to the employer . The staff moral and productivity increas , illness due to stress is reduced . These programs are widely used in the Chicago area . It isn't a new concept. We have been trying for many years to get through to peoria that this really works . Unfortunately the greed wave is winning . The housing prices have increased by 30% in six months . I'm seeing seller financing coming back and FHA not requiring two appraisals . Agents don't put the homes in the MLS and if they do there are 30 offers . It's 2004 all over again . We've been screaming for years , maybe just not loud enough . Thanks for your question. ... more

You've been futzing around with these stories for months. If there is a real issue here, contact a lawyer. I don't think real estate agents are going to keep giving you free advice based on misleading info. Anyway, you need to PAY a lawyer if you have a serious legal issue. ... more

John Brassner answered:
If your question is should you have a local property manager, the answer is yes. And they are the ones to handle #2 and 3. To answer #1, I would need to know your investment goals; How much you have to spend and the balance between cash flow and potential appreciation, etc. I generally recommend single-family homes (stand alone homes) in most but not all cases. Contact me if you are serious about investing in Las Vegas. We also have in-house property management.

Jeff Wallenfang answered:
I do have a few people who can help Canadians get mortgages. If memory serves, the last time I asked they were talking about 20% down. Remember not to spend all your cash on the downpayment because you will have some closing costs, and you will surely want to make some repairs or renovations on your new home. Something you will want to keep in mind is that it's hard to finance a condo unless it's on the HUD list of FHA approved communities (I've attached a link).

Of the 20000+ properties that have sold through the MLS this year, only a few hundred were owner financed, lease-to-own, or some other alternative to cash/mortgage. Don't count on this sort of thing.

I know the NW and SW well and have helped condo buyers in both areas.

Hope you have a great day.
