Have you heard some speak of no money down home loans? Is this true or is it just a dream? Actually, it is true, there are such products out there. They are a little harder to qualify for. In this article I will explain some of the most common ones.
Here is a list of some of those type of loans:
Let me explain each of these programs and how they are no down payment home loans.
Like this couple dreaming, there really are no money down loan programs out there!
This is an awesome loan product and has no down payment requirements. It is a US Department of Agriculture Loan (USDA).
Unfortunately you can only use this loan for homes that are considered to be in a rural area. Which means they are usually good in outer areas of the suburbs. Thus you cannot use this type of loan to buy property in the city.
It is a true zero down loan. There are limitations that you must meet to qualify. But if you do....it is an awesome program! Below I'll provide a link for more information on this program.
For now let's look at another possibility.
If you are a veteran, then there is an awesome option for you! Most all VA Loans do not require a down payment and are an excellent program.
Unfortunately, you must be a veteran in order to qualify for one of these loans. Thus it is not a loan for everyone.
But it is a true zero down mortgage! Let's look at another possibility...
Some states offer their residents a second mortgage program that is a zero down and zero interest and even some have zero payments to them.
How is this possible and how do they use these programs? They are used to help with the down payment and closing costs. Usually you must stay in the home a certain period of time and they will forgive the loan.
This zero down option is limited in its scope and will only help those look for assistance in fees associated with the first mortgage.
We're not done though.....here's another option!
This is a very interesting loan product. Anyone can apply for this type of loan and you do not have to be a veteran to qualify. But you can only use it to purchase VA REO properties.
So if it is a VA foreclosed home you are considering and you meet the requirements for a VA Vendee Loan, you have a no down payment home loan! They will even increase the loan amount by 2 percent to pay for closing costs and many other expenses.
Disadvantages of the No Down Payment Home Loans:
Each persons individual circumstances will vary. This type of product may be perfect for you.
Perhaps you are looking in the suburbs or rural area and can qualify for USDA Loan. Or you are a veteran and can qualify for a VA Loan. Either way it will be worth it for you to investigate if no down payment home loans will fit your needs.
Here is a link to the USDA loan program with a video to help you.
