How long does a potential buyer have to wait to purchase a home after a short sale?I had a short sale on March 2010. I am interested in buying a home, but am not sure how long before I can qualify for a mortgage. I now have a credit score of 700 and about 20% down payment. My wife was not on the short sale, has been working only since a year, and credit score of 700 plus.If anyone has any in information regarding financing for my situation, please let me know.Thanks.RyanJuly 27 2011 - Dublin00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
