No down payment - Posted by Andrew

Hi Andrew:
There are many different ways to structure a 100% or $0-down payment loan. Examples: 75%/25%, 80%/20% lender financed either full documentation or “Stated Income” loans. These “lender financed” deals typically need a better credit profile than “hard money” vehicles. Hard money investors will frequently lend up to 70% or 75% of the value of the property if you can put together a seller carried 25% to 30% 2nd. The “Hard Money” lenders typically do not care much about your credit history as they will have a strong equity position in the event of a default by you.
I would be happy to help you with structuring a low out-of-pocket deal for you.

Warmest Regards,

John Prudhont

Is it possible for someone to buy a house with no money down by getting a loan for 80% if the seller is willing to carry 20%. Do lenders let you do this? What about if you have bad credit? I hear about these 75/10/15 loans but i was just wondering if this could be done 80/0/20 with no down payment to the buyer.

Andrew -

It is indeed possible and very easy - even with bad credit.

There are several sub-prime lenders that allow 100% CLTV.

Please email the details if you would like me to help.

Good Luck…

Jim or John or… ,

I’m looking at an opportunity on a a $60K investment property and would like to hear how I might be able to structure this deal with very little or no money down.

The owner is willing to take back a second of maybe $10k, owes $38k, and wants at least $12k cash in hand.

Do you have any real lenders out there that would put together something like this for me with reasonable rates?
