where are you looking? There are grants, development dollars to be found. You may have to personally sign on the loan and can use other collateral if it makes sense to the funder and you. I have learned it is best to invest in something you are doing.

there are a few examples where on the right deal and the proper timing you can get in for little to no money down...or even get cash back at closing.
But most properties require some money down. One way around that is to buy with zero of YOUR money down. Know the market, cap rates and inventory well and convince a group of investors that if you find an off market deal at an avantageous price and offer property management and or asset manage services that they will cut you in on the action. To be successful you must have a license, and skill.
If the actual question is: Can I (without experience, a license, skill or money) get properties given to me to control? Thats considerably harder to find.
