10+ Types of No Down Payment Required Mortgages

Updated: May 23

Many are familiar with VA loans, and fewer are familiar with USDA loans, each of which provides a mortgage with no down payment required. Many are unfamiliar with specific types of VA loans & USDA loans, & some of the other types of loans available to a broader spectrum of buyers. In this article, I wanted to share about those and some of the many alternatives. I'm also throwing in an option for $100 down loans, & some options where the buyer doesn't need to come up with a down payment, though technically they require a down payment. Please keep in mind that I am not a lender, only a licensed real estate agent.

Typically, but not always, these programs are restricted by minimum credit scores, but some agents like myself can help future buyers with their credit for free prior to purchasing.

Doctor loans at many banks

NACA: no down payment, "no" closing costs, below market rates for those below median income or those buying in areas below median income, solid buy-down options, and credit score not considered. This loan is more of a hassle than most others here, but the math checks out in many cases.
