VA loans, if your previous mortgage that was foreclosure on was not a VA loan, require a waiting period of 2 years. The last one we did the applicant had to wait longer because during that time they did not develop a history with 3 lines of credit (i.e. credit cards, auto loans, etc.) and until they had that 2 years of history they would not qualify (this is fairly typical with all mortgages now).

Much will depend on your current finances, debt, etc., therefore consider visiting with any qualified loan officer(s), after reviewing your overall financial information, he/she can make a determination on qualification--then go from there....if you don't yet qualify, your loan officer may offer great suggestions as to what needs to be done in order to qualify in the very near future....

Oh, sorry Jim, I re-read and see that you said 2 years ago. It will be tough. Again, call him and see what he suggests for you.

How long ago was the foreclosure and bankruptcy Jim? You need to speak with a loan loan officer to be sure. Try my guy - Robert Kurugian - 661-823-8383. (Academy Mortgage)
No obligation, let him check it out for you.

Luck to you!
