How To Get a Mortgage Loan With No Money Down
If you’re a potential buyer looking for how to get a mortgage with no money down, as surprising as it sounds, there are many sellers who will finance a property with little to no down payment.
I’m Ted Thomas, and I’ve been involved in real estate for over 30 years. It seems like everyone wants to be in real estate when the stock market and commodities markets are failing.
Today I’m answering your question about how to get a mortgage with no money down.
I’ll give you some traditional advice. For those who qualify, the Department of Veteran Affairs will allow zero down payments on new or existing properties. The Department of Agriculture has a very similar program. These organizations provide loans with no down payment if you qualify.
An Alternative Way to Buy Homes
I’ve been involved in the subset of the traditional real estate business for many years called tax defaulted property. These properties are the same as traditional real estate, however the owners have failed to pay the state-mandated property tax.
If property taxes are not paid, then the county treasurer will seize the property and ultimately sell it at a public auction.
Amazingly, these properties sold at public auction will have a starting bid price of very close to the delinquent back taxes. The county will actually give the buyer a 60%, 70%, or 80% discount below the tax assessed value.
My savvy investor students research and track the 3,000+ counties that auction tax delinquent property. Their objective is to buy low and sell low, however they are trying to generate $25,000 – $50,000 on each deal. Soon you’ll quickly see how this will relate to how to get a mortgage with no money down.
Seller Financing a Home
No down payment real estate has been available for years. My student investors buy tax defaulted property, and as part of the selling process, they offer installment payments. They could at the same time offer no down payment. This type of advertising will literally attract hundreds of buyers.
Whom are they attracting? Nationwide the credit reporting agency reports that 25% of all people who would like to buy are credit challenged. In other words, the bank is going to reject them because of a poor FICO score of 300-400.
Thousands want a property, and they are unable to finance due to the poor credit scores and their past histories. Many of them are searching for how to get a mortgage with no money down. There are few alternatives for these buyers. They need YOU to be the bank. When they discover your ad, they respond quickly.

Home Financing With an Installment Contract
Just like purchasing a car or a washer and dryer, our real estate can be sold with a contract. Yes, a simple installment contract. It’s one of the easier ways for home buyers to potentially purchase with no money down, or at least with a small down payment.
My student investors attract clients with installment sales which is nothing more than a small down payment plus regular payments over a period of 10-15 years.
The buyers are desperate for installment sales. Their concern is a low down payment or no down payment. Your concern is will they pay you? To solve that problem we suggest an installment contract.
Notice I have not suggested that we sell the property and give them a deed. We create a contract, which could be $0 down or a small payment down and then accept payments for 5, 10, or 20 years, and we do not transfer the deed until the last payment has cleared the bank.
Profiting From Financing a Down Payment
Here’s an example. Two students, Sonny and Marcia, are tracking auctions in Michigan. They find a property with a value of $55,000. They attend the auction and purchase as the highest bidder for only $8,000. They clean it up with minor repairs which costs another $4,000. So far their total investment is $12,000.
They advertise an installment sale, and they finance the down payment and 10 years of low payments for the buyer. The selling price is $35,000.
Let’s look at the numbers:
- Total investment $12,000
- Sale price $35,000
That’s $23,000 in profits, and they seller financed so that adds another $15,000 over the next 10 years. Add all this up. They invested $12,000 and earned $38,000 because they understood the concept of installment sales.
Because their buyer had no down payment, they just increased the monthly payments until the buyer had paid in a down payment.
Do as you see our client doing, purchase a $55,000 house for $8,000. Now you know the exit strategy is to buy low and sell low and collect the money.
We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson, “How to Get a Mortgage With No Money Down”
An overlooked way to get a zero-down mortgage is by finding an owner willing to do seller financing for no money down. This can be a win-win for both buyer and seller.
If you’re a real estate investor, a lucrative way to profit is by purchasing real estate at tax sales for 10 to 20 cents on the dollar, then reselling quickly for 50 to 60 cents on the dollar and offering seller financing.
