FHA guidelines state that it is 1 year for Chapter 13, 2 years for Chapter 7, and 3 years for foreclosure / short sale. You must also reestablish good credit. Please let me know if I can help you become pre-approved.
It is usually 2 years before you can get a loan after bankruptcy. However more importantly is building up your credit score so your credit score will qualify you. I recommend using prepaid credit cards for every day needs like gas or groceries. and of course keeping current accounts is everything. also some small installment loans can't help but only for things that you would buy normally for example furniture or other small installment loans can be created so that you can provide positive trade linesto build your credit. wells fargo has new programs for both of these as well is a secured loan which allows you to put money in account each month and it will report positively to the 3 credit bureaus.
