My answer would be how much can you get, I would advise always getting as much as possible. If they ask me how much I need down, I always ask how much do you have? I don’t use a percentage, but I always get more than I have invested in the property, or more than my down payment if I have any at all. If you never mention a figure you would be amazed at what percentage people will give you.
