Honestly people are always nervous when it comes to the down payment. I would suggest talking to a mortgage person and they will be able to explain to you the best way for you to go. just a FYI 3.5% is the lowest down payment unless you are a VET. If your credit is a little messed up you might be able to go with a rent to own or try and get a co-signer.

The minimum you'll need to put down with any loan is 3.5% of the sale price.

No. It's either financing or 100% cash.
Common down payment amounts are 3.5%, 5%, 10% & 20%. Unless you ate paying all-cash, your credit score matters.

Credit is always an issue if you are financing. If you have something of value, it could be converted into money which could be used for down payment. Sell a car or a boat or you could theoretically exchange properties.
