Have you considered a renting-to-own in the meantime? FYI, I'm not a realtor. I'm a real estate investor. Please direct me to the home you want to buy and I can inquire for you whether they would like to sell it through a installment sales contract for deed. For more questions you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most finance places will tell you that it needs to be 2 or more years since your bankruptcy before you can purchase a new home. Call a local mortgage officer and ask. They can fill you in on what you can do to be ready and when that will be.
