You can purchase a home anywhere from 1 to 3 years afterwards. If you have cash you can purchase immediately. If you are ready to buy, please contact me.

Any new lender will not give you a new home loan until a certain amount of time (typically 2+ years) has passed from the time of the short sale. The lender needs to feel comfortable that you would not default on your home loan again. The new lender will be looking for stable credit history of on-time payment of your credit debts and paying your rent on-time since the date of your short sale.

Since you seem to be certain that you will be a home owner again, then select a mortgage lender and stay in communication with your chosen lender point forward. He/She will keep you informed of the latest mortgage products and can let you know when they have financing that you can qualify for.

Some sources say 2-3 years. However it could be sooner depending on the banks requirements and your current situation. You may need to correct that issue showing you sold your home in 2011, if you in fact sold it in 2009
