Like Dan says, yest the general rule is 2 years. But there are other things to consider, if your current loan is FHA and you go through with a short sale, it is my understanding (local lender and I had this discussion last week)that you will never be able to finance FHA again.

I would recommend that you speak to a lending officer in any case.

I have a couple of lenders I can put you in touch with.

Absolutely talk to a local lender. I have even read that, under the right set of circumstances and some very strict guidelines, you may be able to buy right away. But Dan is correct, two years is the rule of thumb.

The general rule is 2 years, but there are programs for some short sale sellers which under the right conditions allow them to buy sooner. You'll need to talk to a local lender familiar with all the details of your situation and the available programs to find out if you qualify.
