Looking to buy in N. Scottsdale. I had a short sale that closed in August of 2010, but never late. Middle credit score is 717, and have a solid income...200k . Is thee anyone out there who can help.

I can offer this just one day after short sale. Obviously, rates will improve as you go 1 year, 2 years and more. 20% down is necessary less than 2 years from short sale date. AZ, CA, FL, TX

Hi Kurt K,

Yes you can get a Jumbo loan 2 year after the completion of a short sale provided you can put down 20% and all off your other qualifications are in line. Our Jumbo guidelines follow Fannie/Freddie in regards to Short Sales/Foreclosures/Deed-in Lieu/Bankruptcy and there is no pricing hit. We offer competitive market rates 30/15 year fixed and 5/7/10 year ARMS.

I know a few licensed mortgage brokers in Arizona who can do those type of deals.

There's a few different loan programs and options to make it work. You are almost at the 3 year mark so then FHA "may look at you" with a good sized down payment and credit score (which you have already) . Although, I'd try a company that has a portfolio product before FHA though.
Plus, with more investors buying jumbo loans they'll be less strict than 2 to 3 years ago.

I had a client who wanted to buy a home in Arizona, but he had a foreclosure. After researching the web I found a loan program at http://www.cfsflex.com, they allow a mortgage after a foreclosure. There is no waiting period. Good to see lending options coming back.

Hi Kurt:

Sorry it took a while to get back to you; some family emergency issues the past few days...

I do have a lender which seems to meet your needs: Will do standard loan-to-values for "non-delinquent short-sales", which means to 85% for them. Would need to get credit score up to 720, but that should not be a problem as you are now at 717. Everything else sounds doable.

Give me a call or send me an email and we can look at all the details to assure there are no issues once we do "turn over every stone". :)

Sorry....lacked some detail. Looking for a home in the 750k range, but need to be in 10-15% down range...which seems to be a major challenge. All ratios, etc. are fine. Trying to turn over every stone as our lease is up in June and after four years we would like to own again.

Meet with a local and trusted loan officer who can pre-qualify you at not cost and let you know what is available to you after looking at your credit and financial's. It depends how they reported your short sale and what your credit reads.
0 votes Thank Flag Link Mon Apr 15, 2013
The short sale should not make a difference as long as you were never late. What matters will be the purchase price, amount down/loan to value & your documented income on your tax returns. Credit score is important as well but sounds like you are good. After that, there are several lenders to choose from. My first thoughts though would be, have you already contacted another lender who could not give you a jumbo loan? What drove you to ask the question? It's hard to guide you in the best direction without a few more details.

Hi Kurt:

Jumbo loans are different than Conforming loans on how they treat short sales. I will be glad to look at our Jumbo lenders tomorrow and give you concrete information on what is available.

What purchase price and loan amounts are you considering (so I will know what Loan-to-Value to research)?

Have you spoken with a lender about this yet? I have a lender that my clients have used in the past and been happy with the outcome.
0 votes Thank Flag Link Sun Apr 14, 2013
Yes, you have options as long as you were current throughout the short sale process. There are lenders that will lend, however you will need 20% down. If you need a lender referral I'm happy to help with that
Can't act me at 602-717-0796.
