Javier Meneses answered:
Minimum down-payment is determined by the loan program you will apply for. If you qualify, conventional is as low as 3% and FHA is 3.5%. What the right down-payment is for YOU specifically is another story. I always suggest that you meet face-to-face with a mortgage professional and go over all the necessary documents and all that comes with a pre-approval consultation. By the end of this meeting, you will know exactly what your options are, rates, estimated payments, where your credit stands, and even how much you'll need for down-payment and closing costs.

I am in Long Island and available to meet if you need an experienced professional and advisor. Good luck!

Find a pro in your area. All agents should be able to access foreclosures. Just make sure they have experience.
