Did you file for bankruptcy 2 yrs ago or was your bankruptcy discharged 2 yrs ago...big difference.

Also it depends on which form of bankruptcy - chapter 7 or 13?

For Chapter 7: The minimum waiting period for an FHA insured mortgage is 2 years since the DICHARGED DATE

Give me a call for additional info, and if all goes well, I have a couple of Realtors in our team who can help with your search

Sounds like you should be fine to get into a home. If you give me a call I can set you up with a lender who can tell you what you qualify for and we can get busy finding you a home. Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions.

I agree with the advice already given. There are several mortgage loan offices in Denham Springs where you live. Find someone who you are comfortable with and will answer your questions. There are different loan programs and a good loan officer will be able to work with you in finding something that best suits you and/or let you know what your options are.

Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

Hi Jlowe,

The first step is to meet with a loan officer to determine how much you qualify for and to discuss your options.

I would ask the people you trust to give you a few recommendations.

Best wishes,

Hi Jlowe,
I agree with Christopher that you should really call a mortgage company to see if you qualify because there are many different factors to consider when applying for a loan not just the credit score.
