That depends on what type. It is possible to purchase again after bankruptcy after the following time frames and conditions have been met.

FHA
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy (liquidation) does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining an FHA-insured mortgage if at least two years have elapsed since the date of the discharge of the bankruptcy. During this time, the borrower must have

• re-established good credit, or
• chosen not to incur new credit obligations. An elapsed period of less than two years, but not less than 12 months, may be acceptable for an FHA-insured mortgage, if the borrower

• can show that the bankruptcy was caused by extenuating circumstances beyond his/her control, and
• has since exhibited a documented ability to manage his/her financial affairs in a responsible manner.

FHA
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining an FHA-insured mortgage, provided that the lender documents that

• one year of the pay-out period under the bankruptcy has elapsed
• the borrower's payment performance has been satisfactory and all required payments have been made on time, and
• the borrower has received written permission from bankruptcy court to enter into the mortgage transaction.

Conventional/Conforming
Bankruptcy (Chapter 7 or Chapter 11) A four-year waiting period is required, measured from the discharge or dismissal date of the bankruptcy action. Exceptions for Extenuating Circumstances A two-year waiting period is permitted if extenuating circumstances can be documented, and is measured from the discharge or dismissal date of the bankruptcy action.

Conventional/Conforming
Bankruptcy (Chapter 13) A distinction is made between Chapter 13 bankruptcies that were discharged and those that were dismissed. The waiting period required for Chapter 13 bankruptcy actions is measured as follows:

• two years from the discharge date, or
• four years from the dismissal date. The shorter waiting period based on the discharge date recognizes that borrowers have already met a portion of the waiting period within the time needed for the successful completion of a Chapter 13 plan and subsequent discharge.
