We just had a bankruptcy discharged. Is there a gov't backed program that would help us get a mortgage now?

Just curious on how this took place for your buyer and which bank funded the transaction? Guidelines read that a bankruptcy has to be seasoned for 24mo before FHA is an option....

There may be some loan programs out there that can help you but they will require a larger down payment and a higher interest rate as well. Have you spoken directly with a lender?

If your discharged bankruptcy is 12 months or order then YES! you could qualify for FHA loan.

The guidelines have changed again.
FHA changed the rules, now only 12 months waiting period for BK, Foreclosures, Short Sales. At All Western Mortgage, HUD opens financing for borrowers, call us now.

New FHA rule:

Borrowers are eligible for financing 12 months after BK, Short Sale, Foreclosure, and Deed-in-Lieu*

Old FHA rule:

Borrowers must wait 36 months for financing after BK, Short Sale, Foreclosure, and Deed-in-Lieu

Id suggest you consider a lease to own rental-it helps build equity----and lets you get through a cure period on your credit scoring---to reduce your payments without any equity building---and gets you a lower rate for life of loan in ownership period.
call me for further information----

Hello Scott , i don't think so but you need to speak with a lender ; i know they just came out with a program for one year out of bk,short sale and foreclosure but you have to show proof that the reason for it is because of a catastrophic change in earnings more than 20 percent

here are a few good lenders
Carlos Morales Alterra home mortgage 6027577716 or 6029057598
