I have been successufully assisting Sellers with short sales for the last 5 to 6 years and recently, many of those clients are contacting me to find out if they can re-enter the housing market and purchase a home. As I understand it, the government backed loans require 2 years after a short sale but I am curious if there are lenders that actually go by those guidelines or if most, if not all, lender's own guidelines require 3 years or more removed from the short sale? I understand that other factors come into play such as credit history  since the short sale and other qualifying factors.
