So find a small apartment in a complex or if you have at least a 640 credit score and can qualify for an FHA mortgage and do not earn too much money you may be able to get up to $10k from the Florida First Time Homebuyer bond program. FHA has reduced the wait time after a bankruptcy, foreclosure or short sale to one year so if you thought you had to wait 3 or more years to qualify you may now be able to buy.
All the best,
