Hi Motherof3,

It depends on a few things.
If you did not include a mortgage in your bk, the minimum wait is 2 years from discharge for an FHA mortgage.

If you did include a mortgage, the wait is at least 3 years from the day the bank takes back title on the home. If your mortgage was an FHA loan and FHA paid a claim, the wait is 3 years from when FHA paid the claim.
