I am looking to buy my first house, and I was just wondering what would be a good down payment?I have no credit, so taking out a loan is not an option. There is a house listed where the monthly payment is in my price range (> or = $300 a month), but that is if I don't have to pay a down payment. If I do, I was just wondering how much I should start putting aside. I also have car insurance and student loans to pay, but thankfully that is all I have to pay. Would there be any small chance the homeowner would allow me to just make the monthly payments without the down payment (rent to buy, perhaps?)August 16 2010 - Effingham00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
