It depends on the property value and how much banks want to lend you. In general, residential investment properties can be bought for as little as 20 percent down, as long as banks qualify you based on income and your debt to equity ratio. For vacant land, you are looking at full cash down. If you are buying a business for sale, you may be required to pay 35% to 40% down payment. Plus, you can be asked to pay your own cash towards the goodwill money. We work with lenders who might also fund 50% of goodwill money, based on the type of business, cash-flow and other financial analysis.
