Hi Jessica

It is listed only as "gas" but does not specify natural or propane. That would need to be verified. However when this property was previously listed it mentions propane.

Talk to an attorney before you make a decision to stop making payments and walk away. Bankruptcy attorney's often provide free consultations, get legal advise. Different States have different laws.

First, thank you for serving our country!

No credit is almost the same as bad credit. Sounds like your wife would be best off qualifying for a loan on her own. FHA is only 3.5% down and you can possibly negotiate for closing cost assistance from the sellers.

Find a real estate agent you can trust and have them refer you to someone who's versed in both VA and FHA loans.

That's what I would do.

I would also check out the discounted loan products on this website. You would need to qualify income wise and possibly some additional criteria.

There is also a list of lenders available on the site. Or there is a list of government approved lenders on one of my sites. Scroll down the page.

Nick is right on with his response. According to MANUAL FHA underwriting guidelines when a bankruptcy is present 2 years need to pass since discharge AND the borrower mst re-establish credit. Re-established credit means at least a 12 month history of new credit accounts with no late payments.
However if your application is first ran through an AUTOMATED underwriting system then the computer is going to take into account all aspects of the file and generate a decision. In my experience a late payment or two doesnt kill you IF there are other strengths in the file, such as a strong pattern of savings, long job history, reserves, and a low debt to income ratio.

I'd be glad to run your scenario through the automated system and see if it is approvable. Otherwise, like Ron said, hold off and try to establish better credit
