Fnma approved coop can be 10% down, very hard to find

As most have already responded, it is rare to find a coop that allows 90% financing. Even if you do, it is just as rare in this market to find a lender who will lend more than 80% of the appraised value or contract price, whichever is less.

It is very rare that you will find coops that accept 10%. You may find a few, but your first step should be getting pre-qualified for a mortgage. Good luck.

Co-ops generally require at least 20%. There are a very, very small percentage that accept less and they are few and fare between. However, very few lenders will lend 90%, so it becomes a bit of a moot point. Condos generally only require 10% down, but again, most lenders will not lend more than 80%.

There are not many but that doesn't mean you can't find a few. Use a broker to help you with this or be prepared to spend a lot of time searching. The bigger question is do you not have enough for a 20% dp and if that is the case would you really be able to get a 90% loan? First thing, if you've not already, is to get yourself pre-qualified by a mortgage professional. Good luck.

There definitely are. But it's just a few. The grand majority of co-ops will require a 20% or more for downpayment.
