While that down payment can vary depending on what type of financing you qualify for, it is never a bad idea to start saving as much possible, as soon as possible.
If you qualified for any of the stimulus payments and have been keeping that money, or tax refund money, tucked away into savings - this would be the perfect opportunity to use that cash. With the average refund for this year around $3000, there is a good chance your tax refund, potentially paired with a stimulus, can put a major dent in your down payment.
With a competitive market that doesn’t seem to be cooling off anytime soon, now is the time to buy.
