Zillow Advice: Investing - Is it possible toPurchase an investment property with less then 20% down? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-possible-toPurchase-an-investment-property-with-less-then-20-down/433423/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Buy from the owner directly ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-possible-toPurchase-an-investment-property-with-less-then-20-down/433423/ Buy from the owner directly and avoid bank non-sense. &nbsp;I have a listing right now that has seller financing with 15% down. &nbsp;This is a great advantage for buyers as they don't have to real with bank shenanigans, don't have to personally qualify, can leverage their investment capital, and achieve higher rates of cash on cash returns. &nbsp;Even better is that if the property has cash flow as a rental, it will have an immediate return on investment (ROI) making your life a lot easier. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Eager sellers will have some investors take over payments without any money down and without any banks or ridiculous government programs as some of others have suggested. &nbsp;&nbsp;<br/><br/>Get creative!
