I'm a mortgage professional.

We have programs that allow you to qualify the day after your bankruptcy is dismissed and/or the foreclosure is completed.

If you apply that soon you can expect to put down 20-30% depending on your credit score.

If you waited two years you can expect to put down at least 3% but there are also some no money down options available.

I you have any questions or would like help with this you are welcome to contact me.

I'm avialable almost 24/7.

Andrea before you reach out to the collection companies, meet with a local and trusted loan officer. If you would like a referral of some good loan officers I can certainly forward their names and numbers. They can pre-qualify you at no cost and let you know what may need to be done if anything. Collection accounts do have time limits on what can be collected depending on what type of debt is. Calling them can start that clock again so wait until you hear from the loan officer what is best. If you would like assistance with the buying process I would be more than happy to help you. Please email me at

You should have deducted the expenses in the year you purchased, you may be able to file an amended return for that year but really should ask your cpa or who ever completes your taxes for you if you are able. As far as the costs from the refinance, again you should ask yoru cpa as tax deduction are alot less now than they were 3 years ago. ... more

Just a quick addendum to my answer below,
HUD says FHA borrowers can now receive the $8,000 tax credit up front and can be used for closing but not for a down payment. This is a powerful assistance to your housing needs.

Hello Dominique- I am a loan officer and have means/ programs of financing a wide variety of properties and situations. Some of the "hard" deals do require "hard money"- unfortunately. The fees are high, and the interest rate is high, but usually there is no other choice for someone in your predicament.
I also am involved in the NH RE Investor's Association, and am a RE Investor myself- so if you'd like to chat at some point, I may be able to help you out. If you'd like, please contact me via email or phone. Thanks, and Good luck,

Ken L.
PS- I also used to work for a real estate developer, and I know a little about creating housing and that whole end of the game...

Hi Daisy,

On a normal resale property the time for commitment can be as little as 3 weeks from executed purchase and sale agreement and probably not longer than 4 weeks. This can be a factor of which lender the buyer is using and how busy the underwriting department is and also what financial condition the lender might be in with the lender solvent. Also, delays can be a function of the new rules that underwriters are addressing due to the subprime meltdown you read about in the newspapers. Things are changing out there in lenderland, changing on a day by day basis and there is already a lot of bureaucracy in this process to begin with. If you have missed your date, you have options as a seller, one of which is to pull the plug on the deal...I would talk to your agent first. ... more
