Hi, Jay. Conventional/Fannie Mae financing requires a 5 yrs wait from the date the property went back to the home. Which is after the redemption period. FHA and VA require a 3 yr wait.

The typical waiting time after a foreclosure before you can get another loan is 5 years. You could look for an owner financed home if a lender will not accept you.

You might want to consider doing a lease-option.
