I'm in the same situation you are. We did our short sale 8/10 was when it was completed and was told in 2 years I could get a FHA loan. Now I was told by a FHA loan officer that the rules have changed and it is at least 3 years with a mininum credit score of 620 and 10% down. I feel lied to by so many of these financial people, nobody will sit down with you to give you a clear plan to be able to get a loan.

Hi Theresa,

You maybe eligible to buy again with an FHA mortgage. The guidelines require 2 years from the sale date to be eligible as well as re-established credit.

A short sale will negatively impact your credit for several years. But the impact should start waning after 2-3 years and you will become loanable again.
