I am currently filing a bankruptcy and will be done with it in about 4 months . How long before I can start looking at first time home buyer programs?
If you file for Chapter 7 or 11:
4 years to get conventional financing.
2 years for FHA financing.

The waiting period begins at the time of discharge.
