Would you like to buy a foreclosure?
Would you like to have a down payment of $100.00? How about a down payment of $0?
The United States government is selling foreclosures. In fact, they have too many to sell. Because of this, they are offering loan programs to purchase these homes with little or no money down! These homes are available to first time homebuyers as well as buyers who have owned many homes.
But how could this happen?
Leading up to the peak of real estate prices (pre-recession), many unsavory loans were issued to eager borrowers. Unethical banks and institutions gave loans to borrowers who could not afford the real terms of the loan. These loans were essentially bait a switch loans where they had sneaky and deceptive terms. Most often, the borrowers ended up borrowing much more than they could actually afford.
Many of the lenders that created those loans have gone into receivership with the US government. The result is that these loans were defaulted on and the properties were then foreclosed upon. In some cases the amount of foreclosures and internal financial instability were so great that the banks were eventually taken over by the government of the United States.
This has created a unique problem for the government agencies that currently own the foreclosures. To make the matter worse, many potential buyers lack the money for a down payment.
The solution as determined by HUD was to open the floodgates and offer reduced down payments in an effort to liquidate these government owned foreclosures. In addition to the lack of down-payment, the government loans (VA, USDA, and FHA) now offer special low interest rate financing if you purchase these foreclosures to live in.
Prior to the United States taking over these banks, many of the homes were foreclosed upon or were being foreclosed upon. The end result is an unprecedented opportunity for many first time homebuyers. That opportunity is the ability to buy government REO foreclosures with down payments of less than $1,000. In fact, many of the homes qualify for special financing where the down payment is as low as $100 and some are even $0 (when purchasing with VA Loans or USDA loans).

In an effort to stimulate the economy and liquidate government owned real estate assets (REO’s), VA HLC has created a one stop shop wherein those who can afford to pay rent, can now afford a home of their own.

The buyers do however; have to place a refundable deposit into escrow once they have chosen a home. This special program is open to all Americans over the age of 18 but for a limited time only.
