Who can I go to to refinance my condo now that 2 years have passed since I had to short-sale my primary-residence condo?

Asked by Bevpeterson306, Sacramento, CA Wed Nov 28, 2012

My husband and I moved to New York and purchased a condo there in 2006 but retained our condo in Connecticut and rented it out. 2 years after we moved into the New York condo my husband passed away suddenly. This was 2008, right before the market crash. I had to sell my New York condo on a short-sale as I couldn't keep up the payments myself. I was able to retain my Connecticut condo because I could rent it out at almost the cost of my mortgage payments. I have always kept up to date on all mortgage payments, right up until the short sale. My credit score is slightly above 700. But I am being told I don't qualify for a refinance. Is there anyone who might refinance me? Would it make a difference if I were living in the condo (which I intend to do in the future)?

Normally the requirements for most banks are 4 years conventional and 3 years FHA. If your loan is with Fannie Mae and your last loan on the CT property was before June 2009 you will get some help. Coming up on Nov. 18, 2013 Fannie Mae is updating their underwriting guidelines to reduce to standard waiting period minimum to re-establish credit due to a major derogatory (BK, foreclosure, Short Sale, etc...)

Many Loan Officers/Brokers don't even know about this yet. Stick with a Pro and VIP and you will not go wrong.

Wishing you well,

Try and access HARP through your lender, depending on the current Loan to Value, you can save on Title Insurance and appraisal fees
