Can you really buy a home for as little as $100 Down ?

Real Estate Agent with Renaissance Realty Group of Keller Williams Atlanta Partners

Yep - HUD offers a $100 down home purchase program . 

Here is a quick break down of the advantages of their $100 down program:

The allowance of only $100 for the down payment is a sales incentive placed on certain HUD REO listings

If the buyer bids more than the list price, in an effort to secure the purchase, the amount bid above the list price must be paid in addition to the $100

Example: List price is $100,000 and buyer bids $101,500, the buyer would have $1,600 for their down payment


The buyer must not bid less than the list price to obtain this incentive


If this incentive is available, the sales contract package will contain information about the availability


The buyer must request the $100 down payment at the time the sales contract and bid are submitted


The $100 down incentive, if available, can be added to the sales contract at any time during the process by the M&M contractor


The calculation for the mortgage is:

sales price - $100 = basis (add MIP for final loan amount)

If there is a repair escrow in addition to the incentive the calculation is:

sales price - $100 + repair escrow = basis (add MIP for final loan amount)

If the buyer is going to use 203K renovation loan the calculation is:sales price + rehab costs - $100 = basis (add MIP for final loan amount)


     Please let me know if you have any questions!  Thanks, and I look forward to working with you!

Combing the HUD $100 Down with the FHA 203K makes for a great financing option for buyers.
