Chinows2005: The down payment offered for a home would be determined on your finances at the time plus your plans for the future. The "average" downpayment for any area could be determined by past sales. My suggestion is this ... contact a mortgage lender to discuss the personal options open to you regarding a home purchase. If I can be of assistance, please contact me at your convenience. Best of luck ... ... more

We had a shortsale deal close last year, where the bank covered the buyers closing cost, so it is possible. I agree that the chances are less.

In addition to the typical 2-3% (prepaids, tax stamps, etc) you may find that you will have to cover the expense of a survey and other items that the seller would traditionally cover, but may be unwilling to. A closing date can also be somewhat unpredictable, making financing deadlines and rate locks more challenging.

Best of Luck
