What is 100% Financing?
Getting a home loan with 100% financing is exactly what it sounds like. You do not have to make a down payment on your home, but instead receive the full purchase price of the home in way of a mortgage. This full amount is reflective in your loan payments, which will be significantly larger than were you to put a 20% or more down payment.
Those who have heard of these loans often wonder whether they are the right way to go. Keeping more of your own money while still purchasing a house sounds like an extremely good idea. Then again, if you speak with those who have obtained these types of loans you will hear just as many (if not more) people tell you that a fully financed loan is a terrible idea.
