Hi Josecollier75,

That's a great question Yes, you can buy an investment property post-bankruptcy and even after other challenges such as foreclosure, liens, judgements and collections. I work with many lenders who finance investment properties including 1-4 family, mixed use and commercial buildings who have loan options for a business owner in your situation.

You mentioned that your BK is over 2 years old and that you have very good credit now, and a successful day care business in the property you want to buy. You will also need to show enough assets to cover a minimum down payment of 25% of the purchase price, closing costs and reserves. You do not need tax returns for many investor mortgages.

Send me a message if you'd like more info. All the best.

Finding a home can be less stressful than you think.

We would be happy to provide you with a FREE service called Listing Book. Listing Book provides every property listed with the Multiple Listing Service.

We will set up an account that you will then own. Simply enter your search criteria and everything that matches your search will be delivered to your account.

If a property that is over your price limit is reduced into your range, you will be immediately notified.
When new properties are listed on the Multiple Listing Service that meet your search requirements, you will be immediately notified.

This service is free to you and does not obligate you to me or any other Realtor; you get to pick with whom you wish to work.

The minimal information we need to get you started is your full name, email address and $ maximum. You will control the rest.

Hi David, Happy New Year first of all. The public records on that property don't show anything informative. You could call a title company to run a title search on it. That costs a couple of hundred bucks but it would probably give you an answer. If there's anything I could to help, please let me know.
