You could get as little as 3% down depend on the type of loan, I would seek out a mortgage professional

There are options for zero dp but the buyer needs to qualify.

ZERO! There is only one loan that I know of that offers such great flexibility and incentive...a VA loan. If you're a Veteran (and thank you for your service) a VA loan is a valuable tool in the home buying process! I just had a client use the product through Kevin Gannon at Wells Fargo, and I was so delighted for the client!

I agree with Sarah, it all depends on your personal financial situation.

The lowest is 0%. You need to work with an experienced mortgage broker to evaluate your circumstances and determine what you can achieve.

Depends on the loan and the property type. But for primary homes- VA Loans and USDA Rural Development loans are 0 down. FHA is 3.5%. Conventional is 5%.

It completely depends on your personal financial situation. There are so many different types of loans...traditional, VA, FHA, MassHousing, etc. There are grants out there for buyers in certain market places, and heck, there are even hard lenders or private financing that can be obtained for the right buyer.
