That's pretty much the question.

Are you indicating that you have absolutely no money to invest in a home purchase ?

From what I remember you cannot. You need to invest some of your own money into the home. MAYBE closing costs can be rolled in but probably not both

Closings costs up to 6%

Down payment assistance will stop September 30th
Good luck trying to find a lender that hasn't cut it off already

Yes you can. We just signed a purchase agreement today, closing on Sept.28. Zero down, the seller is paying all closing costs. The house listed for $294,500, we offered $300,000. They said yes, they will get about $270,000 at closing.

Very few lenders are still accepting the DPAs, but I have a few that are still taking them up until the last minute. I think you have to come out of your pocket 500 for FHA if Im not mistaken, but that is it. You can also get down payment assistance from a relative if needed.

DPA comes from the seller not from relatives.
DPAs never required 500...

Funds from relatives have to be gifted to the buyer.
