Need more details and best not to give them here. I see you're in Oregon so the best and easiest for you is to call a local real estate agent to see which lenders s/he recommends for helping someone out after a bankruptcy. S/he'll also be able to tell you which ones will handle Homepath properties and also if there are other programs you might qualify for.

Although conventional Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do require a 4 year period from the date the most recent foreclosure deed was filed of record, FHA will allow at year 3 as long as credit has been re established. If you've had no homeownership interest in the last 3 years, you also qualify as a First Time homebuyer again. There are multiple options available, but talking directly to a lender and determining your specific path is paramount. Each situation will carry it's own hurdles to overcome and talking with a professional to determine your specific hurdles would be the best place to start.

You will need to ask your loan officer in your area. One HomePath lender said::
Bankruptcy / Foreclosures / Deed-In-Lieu
ï‚· Measures by the discharge or dismissal date
ï‚· For a previous foreclosure, the new mortgage must be the following:
- A purchase transaction secured by a Primary Residence with a maximum LTV/CLTV/HCLTV of 90%

While another HomePath Lender said:
Bankruptcy: Bankruptcy in the last 4 years is not allowed.
Multiple bankruptcies in the last 7 years are not acceptable.
Foreclosure: Foreclosures in the last 7 years are not eligible.
Deed-in-Lieu: A deed-in-lieu is not allowed in the last 4 years.

FannieMae Guidelines for Bankruptcy (Chapter 7 or Chapter 11):

A four-year waiting period is required, measured from the discharge or dismissal date of the
bankruptcy action.

Exceptions for Extenuating Circumstances
A two-year waiting period is permitted if extenuating circumstances can be documented, and is
measured from the discharge or dismissal date of the bankruptcy action. Weblink:
