Hi Sharonw4211,

It depends on a couple of things.

Are going to live in the home as your primary residence? If not will it be a vacation home or a rental property?
If it's your primary residence then your down payment can range anywhere fro Zero to 5% but if it's a vacation home or a rental property the down payment requirements will range from 10 to 20% down.

It also depends on the type of home.
For example:
If it's a Coop or non-warrantable condo, the down payment requirements will be 20% or more even if it's your primary residence.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Sorry, but there's really no such thing as a selling attorney in Florida real estate. Different licenses entirely. Why not approach the agent who help you buy the place?

Mary, go to to check out the area. I am assuming you mean Lake Fountain Dr, which is east of the Mall at Millenia. Do visit the area before you sign a lease. You will never get a direct answer to your question in a public forum from a real estate professional. We are not allowed to do so. ... more

This question and the information you need will be acquired and provided by the real estate professional representing you or the listing agent. Contact YOUR agent!
If you do not have an agent, you need to call an Orlando agent who responds to your question. Without representation, it is very possible you will not be allowed access to this information.
Do not use the 'contact' link.
Do not rely on Trulia email.
If you are serious, you need to go old school.
Pick up the phone and call an Orlando Fl professional.
Wishing the the very best of success

Visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first--see exactly what your budget can handle and have your credit score checked--their scoring is often different--then go from there--much will depend on the amount down, current debt if any, etc. ... more
