Buying Property With No Money Down

By: Kevin Cox

Buying a house with no money down is not as easy as some might want you to believe. It is also not impossible like how others say. It's all about being persistent. If you have patience and don't get discourage when you hear no or that impossible the first few times, you will meet that seller that is willing to work with you. No money down does not mean that you don'thave to put any money down, it means you don't have to put any of your own money down.

Most of the time the banks don't like to do a 100% financing on a property. This is where your creativity comes in. Coming up with ways to get the down payment might be hard at first but with an open mind it is not impossible. In most cases these ways are 100% lawful, but laws vary from state to state. The best thing to do is check with a lawyer who deals with real estate.

One way of getting money for a down payment is to borrow it from the person selling you the house. Sometimes the seller is willing to do this if he or she had the property on the market for a long time and just wants to make the sale. When doing this the best thing to do is make sure you and the seller are on the same page. use a contract know as a promissory note showing the term that you and the seller have agreed on about how you will pay back the money you borrow for the down payment. If you are honest and follow the contract you not only have a new property but also some one who will put in a good word for you the next time you want to do a similar deal.

A good web site where you can see more information on topics like this is Real Estate Facts which is highly recommended. Thank you and enjoy.
