No Down Payment Programs

No Down Payment Programs in Texas


No Down Payment Programs in Texas

There are about 50 different ways to get a Mortgage with NO DOWN PAYMENT; some programs will also pay part or all of your closing costs, and some even pay down the principal amount of the loan! Many of these actually do not require you to pay any of it back after your meeting some simple requirements - that means that you are actually being paid to buy a home! Holy Toledo!

Some of the no down payment programs are commonly known:

  • The Veterans Administration has a wonderful program for our Veterans who have served us
  • the USDA (yes, the Farming Dept!) has several programs that require no money down, and even some USDA programs will make direct loans so that you can build a new home out in the country!
  • FHA, which usually has a minimum of 3.5% down has some programs that pay your down payment and some closing costs! 

Believe it or not, there are programs sponsored by Indigenous People Tribes that provide Down Payment Assistance and help with Closing Costs, and you don't even have to be a member of their tribe! 

First Time Homebuyer? Don't get TOO excited, that just means that you haven't taken a mortgage deduction on your last 3 tax returns! Some of the Downpayment Assistance Programs require this, but not all of them! Give us a call so we can help you assess your situation. Remember, there is more than one way to skin a cat!

FHA has the Motherload of Downpayment Assistance and Homebuyer Grants! Some are distributed through cities, others through Counties, and many others through enrolled Mortgage Companies. Here is a short list:
