  • The new lending practices since the bail out have made it much harder to get a loan without a down payment. I'm certain there are some banks doing it and others who are using solid asset collateral. Working with a lender to review your credit and to shop your loan application is the best way to see if you are eligible.

  • Yes, for example if you have a VA loan and have good credit. It just depends on what type of loan you have and who you go through.

  • Yes if you are using a VA loan.

  • Yes, you can do 100% financing on VA loans and in certain areas you can do Rural Housing loans. Rural Housing is funded through the USDA and is currently close to running out of funding for the year but they may be extended more funds before their next fiscal year in October.

  • Yes, also some states like Florida has the SHIP program that gives people $10,000 for a down payment
