Yes. You may still qualify for a new owner occupied mortgage with as little as 3.5% down. If you have an FHA loan now, FHA generally prohibits having two FHA mortgages at once, but there are exceptions to that rule. Vacating a property due to divorce is one instance in which an exception can be made. If your existing loan is not an FHA loan, then your fine as well. That being said, you will have to qualify with both mortgage payments. There are conventional options as well, but you will need 5% down.
I am a local loan officer in Atlanta, and have 17 yrs experience. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your situation in more detail. We can get you pre-qualified at no cost, and send your file directly to an FHA underwriter for approval up front, so you know for sure you approved before you make an offer on a property.
