Last I checked most lenders will require 2 years of re-established credit after a BK is finalized. Your best bet would be to meet with a local mortgage broker who has a full array of products available. It's not too early to start to plan, but it may be too early to be approved. If I'm correct, you should take the next 10 months to gain market knowledge of the area you want to buy in, interview some agents to find the one who will represent you the best and save up some down payment.
Congratulations on getting your score up so well since the BK, keep on doing good and by the time you are qualified it will be even higher.

Have you worked out the price, and all the details of the purchase. Do you just need an agent to fill out the contract, and secure the financing? If you need help feel free to drop me a line. Also is your purchasing another property as a second home or investment property, are you putting atleast 10-20% down.

Good Luck
