Does anyone have experience in no money down deals?

I have talked to a few sba lenders and they said the down payment can come from investors or seller carry. Yet, some brokers say they want 20-30 percent before even talking to me. So which is it?

Andrew, I sent you a fairly lengthy email early this morning about this issue. The SBA is going to want 30% down, some of which can come from a second note from the seller. But there is no way that the SBA will do anything with allowing you to obtain one of their loans, with nothing down. The only kinds of deals where you can come in with nothing down, are those people perhaps in your own family that have a business and know you exceedingly well, or from the seller for whom you have had a long-term relationship and knows you well enough to take that kind of a risk.There are simply no free lunches in this scenario.
