Generally, yes -- but only if you've been proactive with getting your credit up to a level in which a lender can lend to you.

Normally, a lender is unable to lend to you within 3 years after a foreclosure or a short sale. Sometimes it can be sooner on a short sale under certain circumstances.

In the meantime, you'll want to make sure your credit is at/near a 640 score and plan on having a minimum of 3.5% down plus needing closing costs to facilitate a closing.

If you need more insight, please let me know!
