I'd like to buy a foreclosed house in my neighborhood, what loan products are available?

I bought my first house August of this year and I have 2 roommates helping me with cost. I make about $7000 gross a month at my full time job and about $1050 a month from my 2 roommates. My credit score is 789 and I have no debt other than my mortgage. I'd like to buy another house in my neighborhood and rent it out but don't have much cash for another down payment.

i did not state where you live but I suggest waiting before you buy anything else.......unless you can save 50%---or obtain a county tax foreclosure prop. YOU can get an 80% new ltv loan on the new home--or perhaps even 100% if you are moving into it.
