There are a couple of different options the minimum down payment for conventional loans is 5%, FHA is 3%, and VA is 0%. There is also a USDA program available for rural areas that is a 0% down program as long as the property is located in a USDA service area. Here is a link where you can check weather a property qualifies for this loan: http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov/eligibility/welcomeAction.do

It depends on a lot of different factors such as your credit, reserves, where you buy, how much you buy, etc. Could be 0% down in some places like Little Elm on some houses. That might be under a USDA program.

FHA loans normally require 3.5% down.

Some loans may require 20-50% down payment.

Best way to start is to get prequalified for a loan. Let's see what programs might work for you and go from there.

0% for homes identified in rural areas according to census data. Talk to your lender about these areas.

3.5% for FHA up to $271,050 loan amount.
5% for Conventional. Up to $417,000..... more down for low scores and higher loan amounts.

If you don't mind living north of 380 or a little east of Denton then you may be able to put ZERO down on a home. Same goes if you are a vet, but vets can buy anywhere. Otherwise 3.5 % for a FHA or 5% for a conventional loan. Give me a call if you'd like more details. I am an accredited buyer's representative (ABR).
