If your bankruptcy was just discharged, you typically have two years from that date to wait to loan. Plus, income qualification is probably going to be an issue and any job typcially has to be for at least 6 mos to 2 years to be considered stable income. There are some exceptions to that rule. And as said, your credit will play a part. However, a local bank may consider the loan as a personal loan or if you have a credit union, that may be an option.

If I were you, I would talk to the foreclosing bank to see if you could assume the mortgage of the owner or if they would loan to you. But I would start looking at rentals.

You do have some options, as Scott said your best/safest bet is to find a local lender and see where you and he stand. Your credit score will play a major factor. If your score is too low, you may want to look into some lease purchase, or owner held financing options. Either way, I'd suggest interviewing at least 2-3 local Realtors and find one that you trust to help you.
Best of luck!!

It could be dangerous working with an internet lender, you should start by meeting a local and trusted loan officer who can prequailify you at no cost and let you know if there are any morggages available.
