FHA mortgages are the least restrictive for a previous bankruptcy. HUD requires that a minimum of 24 months must have elapsed from the DISCHARGE date of a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy before a borrower can be eligible for an FHA mortgage.

For a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, then you must have made at least 12 on time payments. Additionally, you must also have permission to purchase from the Bankruptcy Court.

In the time since the Bankruptcy, there should be no new derogatory items such as late payments, collection accounts, liens, judgments, etc. Having late payments after a Bankruptcy is often viewed as a disregard for the importance of credit. It also reflects that you are still having financial struggles.

It sounds like the home was not part of it, but if there was a mortgage was included in the Bankruptcy, you must wait at least 36 months from the foreclosure date to be eligible for an FHA mortgage. Sometimes, the foreclosure happens well after the Discharge Date of the Bankruptcy. If the mortgage was no re-affirmed, there is not much that can be done until the property get foreclosed on.

Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your options. To get Pre-Qualified you purchase, you can submit your request online at www.rodneymason.com.

For REO properties, those often take several days. When there are multiple offers, the Lisiting Agent will usualyl ask for the "Highest and Best" offer from each buyer.

The best advice is to ask your Buyer's Agent since they are the most familiar with your specific transaction.
