Mortgage application

Asked by Paulmai0122, New York, NY Wed Nov 7, 2012

I was a prev homeowner. Files BK due to my divorce 3 years ago. Remarried and my current wife never owned a home. Can we get a loan with 0 down and will she qualify as first time homeowner?

It depends on your income qualifications as well. There are no 1st time homebuyer programs that I am currently aware of, state or federal, so that really does not matter at the current time.
3 years BK discharge should be ok - but you may need 20% down.

Depending on BK discharge date and type of Bankruptcy, you may already qualify, there are programs available that may qualify your wife for grants; however, there are additional ?s that need to be addressed and answered. Feel free to contact me to see if that is a viable option.

Your wife can purchase a home and get financing based only on her credit score and income. If she makes enough to be pre-approved, your income and credit score don't have to be included.

Depending if you reestablished good credit. If your bk was discharged 3 years ago you could be good to go. If you buy together it does not make any difference if she never owned a home before. You can may get an fha loan with 3.5% down.
Give me call and we can discuss some options

It really all depends on what she will qualify for. I suggest speaking to a loan officer. I could give you a recommendation if you like.
