11/16/2023 – 100% Financing – 0 down payment

Although we have not seen many buyers looking for 0 down loans lately, we still offer that product in many different forms. The main reason is affordability, but we may see more of these as interest rates continue to fall.


CALHFA and Chenoa are the two main programs we use for buyers without money.


CALHFA has an income limit of $194,000.00 in Los Angeles County, and its rates are comparable to conventional rates, assuming you don’t need a credit from CalHFA for closing costs. Yup, that’s correct. For a higher rate, they will give you a credit of up to 3% of your closing costs. You can currently get financed up to $1,125,000.00 on that program.


Chenoa has no income limits and offers a first and second mortgage. The second mortgage is forgiven after three years of on-time payments. Rates are slightly higher than standard FHA rates, but this also serves a purpose.


Condo / Townhome issues we know of now. Properties can be financed with 10% down and are considered NON-WARRANTABLE:

  1. American Beauty Village – Insurance
  2. Scenic Hills – Insurance
  3. Mariposa – Litigation – Agreed upon, but not yet recorded
  4. Bouquet Canyon Village – Insurance
  5. Madison – Litigation
  6. West Creek / West Hills – Insurance
  7. Cornerstone – Insurance
  8. Canyon Oaks – Insurance
  9. Brookside Walk – Insurance – NEW as of last week
  10. Shadow Ridge – Oak Park – Insurance
  11. Cabrini Villas – Burbank – Insurance
  12. Sierra Glen Condos – Insurance
  13. Las Ventanas – Litigation


Please let me know if you hear anything new on condos or townhouses. We will see premiums increasing, likely increasing the HOA Fees soon!


Interest rates had a great Tuesday and a stormy Wednesday, but today is great again. The tide has turned, and the economy is as strong as it was thought to be a month ago. The inflation numbers are lower. Rates can change quickly, so buyers beware.
