Good for you, I am soooo proud of your accomplishments!  I suggest that you contact a lender and let him run a check on your financial history, even if you are not able to buy right  now, you will know when you will be ready to make your first purchase and walk you through the necessary steps.  The best of luck!

You'll want to post your question in the mortgage section to get the attention of lenders.
