Minimum down-payment is determined by the loan program you will apply for. If you qualify, conventional is as low as 3% and FHA is 3.5%. What the right down-payment is for YOU specifically is another story. I always suggest that you meet face-to-face with a mortgage professional and go over all the necessary documents and all that comes with a pre-approval consultation. By the end of this meeting, you will know exactly what your options are, rates, estimated payments, where your credit stands, and even how much you'll need for down-payment and closing costs.

I am in Long Island and available to meet if you need an experienced professional and advisor. Good luck!

You should call your local Realtor one who has real knowledge of your community, perhaps lives there who farms and networks the area/specialist.

Discuss the possibility of the sale of your home.

If I can further assist on you please let me know.

Janet Nation, CBR answered:
The average time it takes to sell a "nice" home will be contingent upon price, location and condition combined. If 450K is a random number you just selected because that's what you want, and it's not in sync with what similar homes that have sold for in the neighborhood, expect to be on the market for a very long time. ... more

Bellmore is nice. levittown doesn't compare and i think seaford is nice as well.
Merrick is expensive though it is a desireable area with great schools and great location - to highway- malls- beach. a lot. Not just trying to sell, but i do have a home for sale by owner. It's 5 bedrooms and great value for the money. It's 540,000 but it's quite negotiable. take a look- it's on and also the website.
Good luck!
