You can count on at least 3-5 years based on the new FHA guidelines, but that's if you are proactive in reviving your credit and seeking credit counsel, otherwise you could be looking at a much longer time period. If you haven't been foreclosed on yet, I would strongly suggest a short sale and would be glad to speak to you about your options. We can stop the foreclosure now.

Talk to you soon,

To purchase with a FHA loan you must be 3 years out from your foreclosure date to purchase a new home!

Let me know if you have further questions,

You are talking at least 7 years, up to 10. That is why the short sale is so popular. Now you are to one at the least and probably 2.
