Shelly,

That is a great question, the answer is actually not cut and dry and as simple as many may think. I must get more information before i can even answer the question. For instance, where you ever reported late on a mortgage payment prior to the short sale going through? If the answer is no, then you may be able to buy right away with wait period. If the answer is yes, it may be a little more difficult. I would love to discuss your possibilities further with you. Feel free to contact me at any time. We are a national direct lender with access to the industries most competitive rates but more importantly service second to none.

Shelly it depends on how you negotiated with your bank how they will report it. If you had a good negotiator, you may be able to buy right away, if you did not negotiate it and it is a negative, it could be over 2 years. They key at this point is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for given your divorce and short sale.

Many lenders will require you to wait 2 years. Check with a local lender to see if they have any programs you can fit into.
