I am a Realtor with Mel Foster Co and am licensed in both Illinois and Iowa. The Quad City Housing Market is different from other parts of the country in many aspects. We have not experience as many ups and downs in our market value as other parts of the country. The lenders are right you do need to wait 2 years from a discharge of a bankruptcy to qualify for a home loan. I would spend that time increasing your credit score as the higher your score the better your interest rate when you are able to buy. But I would also do some research on what's out there in the market place so that when you're ready to buy you'll have that education and will be ready to move. I can set you up on an automatic notification of homes that meet your criteria. It's an easy way to do a home search and a year goes by rather quickly. You can contact me at or at 563-650-4928 for further information.
