Am in the middle of purchasing - and the only program I found w/ 100% financing was USDA - but there are requirements re: income and location of property.

USDA is for rural areas.

You can buy a home with Nehemiah, but you have to your loan closed before October 1st.

well, rural is dependent upon definition -- I qualified for a USDA loan, and the home is an area I would not call rural. Parts of Raleigh, NC qualify for the USDA loan.

Rural is very broad, many "sub-urban" areas qualify for USDA. Ask a broker or banker about the possiblity, they can give you a map of your local area. USDA also has maximum income limits you need to check into.

There is also VA financing for 100%, but you have to be a verteran or the spouse of one. FHA with down-payment assistance is an option. Seller-funded DPA programs are set to end on 10/1/08 but there are also city and county funded ones under special circumstances.

For any "conventional" mortgage 3% down is usually the minimum, however in many cases 5% is required. Lenders want to know that a buyer has some investment in the transaction. 100% financing is not only risky because there is no equity to cover the potential losses, but because it makes it too easy for a borrower to just walk away.

Why not rent your house out and rent one for you in Fl. until you can actually sell your house?

The law not only passed Congress, the President signed it today.

Most areas in North Port, FL qualify for the USDA loan which you can get 100% financing. There are some income requirements though, as previously stated.
