The amount of the down payment can vary, but generally you should make a down payment that equals at least 10% percent of the purchase price. First-time homebuyers may go as low as 5%. You should also consider starting off small making sure you do not over-extend your payments.

How much can you afford? Simple. Just refer to the chart below!
