There is not a direct answer to your question. It depends on your other credit, the circumstances of the short sale, was there a deficiency, etc. You will most likely have to wait 3-4 years to repair your credit, but even that will depend on the lender and what the rules are when you get ready to buy again.
If you are military or a veteran, all could be better in your favor.

Most lenders require a 2 year window between the closing of the short sale and the new purchase. I'd be happy to refer a lender to you who could best answer your questions. Let me know if I can help.
