Can I get a VA Loan?

I had a foreclosure on 7/2010, and my wife and I both have "good" credit scores (690-710). We'd like to use my VA benefits to get a loan on a home (been renting since 09). We found a house we're fond of, so we'd like to buy now if possible. Any advice?

Home we like is located in NY.

Good evening,

Yes, we are a direct VA lender and you can buy again two years after a foreclosure.

Good luck!

Hi you can qualify for a loan with VA two years after foreclosure, now that does mean from the time the bank takes it into possession. Of course other things will factor into that and my best advice is to talk to a lender that specializes in VA, if you need a contact person please don't hesitate to contact me. I wish you the best.
