I work with a lender that can loan again the day after a short sale or foreclosure with 25% down, six months of reserves, and only a 600 FICO. Give me a call to discuss.

We have a lender that can offer you a loan but the rate will be higher than market rates. At this point, the affordability of the loan or monthly payment is what you should be looking at instead of the rate. You can always refinance the mortgage at a latter date. Please give me a call and I can put you in contact with our lender.

You have options. If enough time has passed, you could qualify for a home if you have good credit.
For example, I am closing on a home Friday with a buyer who had a foreclosure 3 years ago.
Next week I am closing a different home on a different buyer who had a foreclosure last week.
so it really depends on how much you have for a down payment and/or how long since you had a foreclosure. call us for more options 480-788-2469

You are right a foreclosure does hurt but it is not a death sentence. I can get you with a loan officer to develop a plan that will work for you. Give me a call and we can discuss more details to make sure you are connected with the best option for your situation.

Dear Tom:

Options with a foreclosure on your record

1. Larger down payment on your mortgage
2. Make sure all of your credit is current
3. Get a co-signer and refinance when your credit improves
4. Consider a "seller may carry" home with interim financing until your credit improves
5. Ask for a free grant to help with your down payment
6. Hard money lenders take more risk
7. Save up money and work on repairing your credit, check your credit reports

Call with any questions.

Great question. There are waiting periods for each type of loan. (FHA, VA, USDA and conventional) And there are greater thresholds to qualify. Know that just because you have met the waiting period does not mean you will qualify. And there are lease or rent to own options as well that will allow you to move into a home sooner than the wait period. If you want more data I would be happy to supply you with data. Being local to you may help as well.

Hi Tom,

Many people are recovering from their foreclosures and are now homeowners again!

Depending on when your foreclosure took place, the type of financing you are applying/qualify for (VA, FHA, etc) and other credit scoring factors, your local credit union may have creative options for you.

Some sellers also offer flexible buying terms such as lease purchase and seller financing which could work for you.

Please feel free to contact me directly at 602-330-8900 to see which option may best fit your needs.

Don’t try to “get around” anything while applying for a mortgage. Wait for the appropriate timeline for the type of mortgage you intend to use then apply. Good luck,

Some lenders that I work with can lend to you as a qualified buyer today regardless of the date of foreclosure.
I am happy to put you in touch with them today.
This is the best time to buy and there is no reason to wait.
