Dan is correct. Most lenders will require 2 years after the bankruptcy has been discharged (DISCHARGED, not filed). During that time, you should be working on rebuilding your credit. I know several people who have recently gone through bankruptcy and ahve 700 credit scores again already.
Speak with a local lender about what their requirements are and give them the basics of your situation. They should be able to hep you with more detailed information.
It depends on what your needs are. You can rent a condo for as little as $800 per month and the prices go up from there for a townhouse or house. Contact your agent who can send you some options from the MLS. There are a lot of options out there to fit a variety of needs. Good Luck!... more
