Typically it will take a minimum of 2 years post bankruptcy in order to qualify for a mortgage. Focus on re-building your credit slowly. If you can attain a credit score of 640 or higher you should be able to qualify for a mortgage. It may be necessary to open a "secured" credit card to start rebuilding your credit history.
