We do these all the time. Our portfolio "2nd Chance" loan allows you to buy after a Short Sale with no waiting period.

You'll need 20% down + 6 months reserves as well as a 660 mid FICO. Late payments are acceptable.

We've been doing these for years all over the US and have a 5 star rating on Zillow, Yelp, and Trulia.

You should look at Eagles Nest which has some of the most beautiful lots in the entire Phoenix area for views. Not sure what your price range is but this is a high end neighborhood in Fountain Hills with million dollar plus homes. It backs up to a mountain preserve. MCO Realty is the developer. ... more

Hi Angie,

If the bank doesn't foreclose, there will not be a recorded record of foreclosure, HOWEVER, if the brother/son tries to get a mortgage, his credit report will show these mortgage lates that will be interpreted by the underwriters as a foreclosure, even though he hasn't "officially" gone through the foreclosure process.

In any event, unfortunately, his credit is in the shredder!

All the best,

It is possible and the best thing for you to do is to discuss your specific situation with a good lender. Your score is good for having had a bankruptcy. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions or need assistance in the process. I would love to help! We can assist you with speaking to some lenders as well.

Best Regards,

Kosal, talk to your agent. There are so many things online that you can't believe. The best thing to do is to get a MLS history report to see what the history is.

Yes, you can still attempt to purchase a home that has an auction date set. Not sure which type of auction your are referencing (trustee sale or bank owned auction)?

If it is a trustee sale auction your are referencing, the lender can postpone the auction while the short sale is being reviewed. There are many variable to this situation in question. ... more
