Buying a home after a short saleMy husband sold his home in October 2013 through a short sale. We relocated for his job ( His choice) and this was the only option we had of selling the house. My name was not on the mortgage. I'm wondering how long until we can apply for a home loan? I make about $750 a month myself ( through part time newspaper job and babysitting job) Could I qualify for a home loan myself with my husband as a cosigner? Or could I apply for a loan for myself? (based on my small income but obviously my husband would be helping pay for the home.) We would much rather put equity into a home rather than pay $1000 a month in rent.Thank you.February 05 2014 - Bangor00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
