Is it possible?  Does such a loan still exist?

The quick answer is yes.  Not too long ago there were many lenders who offered 100% financing.  This was when home values were appreciating fast, and equity was being seen before the ink on the mortgage papers dried.  These were $0 down payment home loans in addition to VA & USDA programs.

VA 100%-- you must be eligible for va financing.  Military or military related borrower
USDA 100%-- the property must be eligible.  It needs to be within a deemed 'rural' area.  In Montgomery County & other MD, D.C. and Virginia suburbs these rural areas can be hard to find.

Not VA or USDA eligible?  There IS another option right now...  If you have very strong credit scores.
You do not have to be a 1st-time home
