FHA requires only 3.5% down. USDA offers 0 down but has income and property limits. Feel free to call or email. And I'll go over everything with you.

On FHA, the downpayment is 3.5%. You can negotiate with the seller to give you a credit to help pay your closing costs, up to 6% of the sales price. The state also may have some programs that apply to you, check out their programs her: http://www.state.nj.us/dca/hmfa/home/roadhomenj/programs.htm .
