There is no set amount of money or particular percentage of the purchase price of a property that is "required" as a down payment for you to proceed with a purchase transaction. A competent mortgage lender can speak with you about your specific loan and overall financial needs to suggest a loan product that might work best for your situation.
If you'd like a list of mortgage lenders that I've successfully worked with in the past, I'd be happy to provide you with some names.
After having contacted a lender, if you are planning to use a real estate agent to assist you with your transaction I'd be happy to help you.
Good luck, and let me know if you have any additional questions.
