No Down Mortgage
The real estate boom combined with historically low mortgage rates has made real estate one of the best investments nowadays. However, while getting a cheap mortgage has become easier than ever, most prospective buyers find themselves against a wall when it comes to making the down payment on the mortgage. If you are one of those who would like to buy a house but are despairing of finding enough money to make the down payment, there is some good news for you. It is indeed possible to get a no down mortgage, meaning a mortgage with no down payment, in order to buy a home. There are several ways in which you can obtain a no down mortgage. Owner financing is one such way. Sometimes, if there are too many unsold houses in an area, sellers are willing to assist the buyer by agreeing to lease purchase or owner financing plans. Either way, the buyer does not need to make a down payment. Another method to acquire a home with no down payment is to trade one property for another. Alternatively, the buyer can acquire a property with a line of credit secured by the equity in another property. In this case as well, he or she can obtain a no down mortgage. VA loans, offered by the Department of Veteran Affairs, is yet another way to obtain a house with a no down mortgage. VA loans are available to active and retired members of the military service, veterans, POW's and MIA's and their unmarried widows. Additionally, any member of the general public can purchase a VA foreclosure with no down payment. If you are a first time home buyer and can show financial need, you may be eligible for special financing from the Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Under this program you can get your first home without a significant down payment.
