There's normal everyday expenses of rent (or mortgage), electricity, cable/internet, food, etc

The list is endless.

Here's 5 ways how:

1) Down payment assistance loans now go up to $879,750 LOAN AMOUNT (not sales price), you can have Unlimited monthly income (yes, sounds crazy), and can have owned a home before.

2) Cash out any stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc - take a look at your returns on your latest are they? I bet not nearly as great as you think. Why not cash out some money, use that for a down payment, and get much better returns?

3) Take a loan against your retirement account, 401(k), etc - much like above - I bet your returns are paltry. Instead, take a loan against it, use the money for a down payment, and get much better returns.
