It's True! Programs DO Exist for Little or NO Money Down Financing



It's True! Programs DO Exist for 
Little or NO Money Down Financing


     I've written in the past about dispelling rumors that persist about Down Payment Requirements needed to buy a home.  Frustratingly, I continue to hear from potential Home Buyers and others that believe the rumors to be true.

     Let me state the facts here:  Currently home loans are available for Home Buyers that DON'T have a 20% Down Payment saved towards a home purchase.

     Low/No Down Payment Options that exist today:
  • The longstanding FHA financing option is still available. It remains available to those Buyers with as little as a 3.5% Down Payment
  • Conventional Loans are available with 3% Down Payment * with Fannie Mae's HomeReady Loan 


  • Loan Options exist today with little or NO Money Down. They are:

  • A. VA: 100% Financing for Qualified Military Veterans
  • B. USDA-RD: 100% Financing for Certain Qualified Rural properties/locations
  • C. FHA: $100 Down Payment for Qualified HUD-owned properties
  • D. IHDA *: 100% Financing. Income Limits Apply. Funding is limited. Restrictions are also in place and apply. (* Illinois Housing Development Authority. Can be used for purchase of IL properties only.


       Note:  While FHA and Conventional Loan Programs require 3.5% Down (FHA) and 3 - 5% Down (Conventional), these Down Payment Funds can be GIFTED by relatives (within certain guidelines as to the Donor's relationship to the Borrower(s).  


     Also:  A Co-Signer on a Mortgage can contribute ALL of the required Down Payment Funds needed ... even if they don't plan on living in the financed/purchased property.

Love Your New Construction .. But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

Love Your New Construction ... But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

*I want to preface this article by saying it's geography specific to the Chicagoland Area and its collar counties ...


So you've opted for building or buying a newly constructed home ... 

You've decided you'll invest most, or all, of your savings to cover Down Payment and Closing Costs.After all, it's a new home, you hopefully won't need money for repairs or improvements for quite a while, right?  

Plus:  The property taxes for your newly constructed home will initially be lower, as they'll be based upon the vacant lot on which your new home is built.  (The new home wasn't completed yet for the previous tax year's bill.) 

But how does this affectyour future tax bill and the tax portion of your monthly mortgage escrow payment?

When obtaining financing:  During your first year of a new construction occupancy, the real estate tax portion of your escrow account is based upon the last av…

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...


“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.
