You MUST have a down payment of 20%

Sure, a 20% down payment is great if you want to avoid having to pay for Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI), but many lenders have options that would help you with your downpayment. In other cases, you could also find lenders with loans requiring a smaller downpayment as long as you’re willing to pay for the monthly PMI yourself. Some Government backed loans such as those offered by the Federal Housing Administration have a 3.5% down payment requirement. 

Bottom line, shop around and make sure you find the right lender to help you navigate this process. if you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I can be sure to point you in the right direction with a few recommendations.
