5% down for a conventional loan, or you can get an FHA Loan for 3.5% down, if the home qualifies for FHA financing, remember that, down payment and closing costs are two different things. You would need to get a good faith estimate from a lender to know exactly what your cash to close requirements will be, sellers can pay up to 6% of the sales price towards buyers closing costs for Conventional and FHA loans, as long as this is agreed on, and part of your contract to purchase the home.
Credit scores and income look ok depending on your long term debt. I would suggest you call Betsy Feroli at West Star Mortgage in Burleson, she can get you pre qualified over the phone in about 10 minutes. Her number is 817-622-9163

Yes, 5% is enough...... We have loan programs for as little as 3.5% down.
And the scores are within program guidelines.
Apply with confidence.
