Generally you need to put down at least around 10% for a conventional loan.
How much down payment do you have prepared and have you been pre-approved for a loan? Getting pre-approved is important so you can know how much you can afford and also so you can show sellers that you are qualified. Sellers do not want to take their home off the market if they are not sure you will be able to obtain a loan, especially in this market.
Feel free to contact me directly at (310) 717-1321 or JamieTian@RodeoRE.com and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have or recommend a few lenders who can get you preapproved in a day or so.
If you have any further questions or if you need a loan with great pricing, feel free to contact me with the information on my profile page!
I hope this helps and good luck!
