The USDA loan program and the VA loan program allow eligible buyers to buy a house with no money. Both are available to first-time home buyers and repeat buyers alike. But they have special requirements to qualify.


Not everyone will qualify for a zero-down mortgage. But it may still be possible to buy a house without paying money down if you choose a low-down-payment mortgage and use a government grant or loan to cover your upfront costs.


The HomeReady and HomePossible programs can be especially helpful for first-time home buyers who earn low incomes. They offer easier qualification guidelines, including higher DTI limits and flexible income sources. Plus, these loans charge lower private mortgage insurance (PMI) rates than other conventional mortgages.


For example, home buyers using gift money for their down payment need to show get a gift letter from the donor. And the lender will want to see a clear paper trail showing where the funds came from and when they were deposited in your account.


There are more than 2,000 DPA programs nationwide, with assistance available in every state. Each program has its own guidelines, though most require you to be a first-time home buyer with a low-to-moderate income.


The amount of money you could get varies by program, too. For instance, one down payment assistance loan in New York City can offer up to $100,000 for eligible buyers, while another in Arkansas tops out at $15,000.


These include loan origination fees charged by the lender along with third-party fees required to set up your home loan (things like the credit report, home appraisal, title search, and underwriting fees).


Thirty-eight percent of prospective buyers say that saving for a down payment is their biggest obstacle to homeownership. Considering the median home sale price of $356,700, the average first-time buyer would spend $24,969 on a down payment.


There are resources for down payment assistance that provide a clear path to homeownership. Current legislation awaiting a vote in Congress would offer $15,000 tax credits and $25,000 grants to first-time buyers.


Down payment assistance programs typically have credit history and income requirements. Programs for first-time home buyers may require the completion of a mortgage education course. These down payment assistance options are available now.


VA loans provide home-buying options for U.S. military members, veterans, and their spouses. Like USDA loans, VA loans have no down payment or credit score requirements, though most lenders prefer a credit score of 580 or higher.


FHA loans have a minimum 3.5 percent down payment requirement for borrowers with a credit score of 580 or higher. FHA loans have flexible credit score requirements. Borrowers with scores as low as 500 are eligible for approval if they invest a down payment of 10 percent or more.


There are two government-backed 0%-down-payment loan options. The VA loan program is specifically for military borrowers, while the USDA loan is aimed at low- to moderate-income borrowers buying homes in designated rural areas.


The USDA loan program provides low- to moderate-income homebuyers with no-down-payment mortgages to buy homes in USDA-approved rural areas. Although no mortgage insurance is required, eligible borrowers must pay an upfront guarantee fee and an annual guarantee fee that becomes part of the monthly payment.


Also called the Fannie Mae Standard 97% loan, this program has no income or neighborhood limitations and only requires a 3% down payment for qualified borrowers. There is a homebuyer education requirement if all of the applicants are first-time homebuyers.


Are zero-down mortgages a good idea? If you have a stable job and income and extra rainy day money in the bank, a zero-down mortgage may be a good way to get your feet wet in homeownership.


What credit score do I need to buy a house with no money down? No-down-payment lenders usually set 620 as the lowest credit score to buy a house. You can boost your
