Not unless you want to commit fraud with the lender. However they do have 100% financing programs available if you have excellent credit. Some will allow the seller to pay up to 3 - 6% of the closing costs. Since the house will appraise for more than you can purchase it for just add the amount of closing costs to the purchase price and have your contract state that the seller agrees to pay all of buyers closing costs.
