If you are a first time home buyer, there are FHA Loan Programs with 3.5% down payment.
See the website here: http://www.hud.gov/buying/loans.cfm
Also for first time home buyers, is the $8000 tax credit.
For more information: http://www.federalhousingtaxcredit.com/
It would be my pleasure to refer to a mortgage broker that I work with. They will be better able to inform you what programs you qualify for, the home purchase amount, what the down payment and your mortgage payment will be, etc.
Feel free to contact me for more information. Now is a great time to buy, and chances are you will be paying less than the rent you pay now.
