There are many different loan programs available. The choices are endless. You need to talk with a few different lenders, and find a product that best fits your specific needs. 10% down is an industry standard and that doesn't always work. Especially for first time buyers who may where the cost of the average condo is considerable. I would ask you lender(s) to come up with some different options for you that fit with your long term goals.

A down payment of 10% of the purchase price is payable at contract signing. This is standard in Manhattan but in the other boroughs it varies and is more easily negotiated down.

The programs available are heavily dependent on your credit score and your ratio of debt to income. 100% financing programs are readily available if the bank likes your numbers
