How long ago was your deed in lieu? Deed in lieu's are typically reported the same way as a foreclosure. You mentioned a low down payment, so it sounds like FHA would be the best option for new financing. Currently, FHA requires 4 years after a foreclosure is discharged before allowing a new mortgage. Was your old mortgage an FHA loan? If so, you'll want to find out when the Caivers was filed, since that will also affect your ability to go FHA. Caivers has to be a minimum of 3 yrs old in order to proceed with FHA financing.
