if i purchase a home that is under market value do i need a down payment?

I am considering buying a house from a family friend and looking at the best way to do it. The house is worth 160K-180K but would be purchasing it for somewhere around 120K. Being that the house is valued so much more would I not need a down payment and how do I figure in taxes and such?
