I lost my home last year, and filed bankruptcy. How long until I can buy a home?

I bought my home when it was way overpriced, but at the time I thought if I didn't buy "NOW" I'd never get in. Now homes are at a price I can afford...but noone is willing to give me a loan. Any suggestions..I am a single mom and would really love to buy a home for my daughter and I at a more realistic price.

You are going to need lots of cash and a lender who might be able to do a hard money loan - where interest rates are high!

Using co-signer assumes that you are qualified for a mortgage, although perhaps at a lower $$ level than your goal.   As you currently aren't qualified, I don't think a co-signer would help.

This is a superb time to rent.   IN most parts of the country, housing prices are still falling.   In this condition, it is a great time to be building up your down payment and your credit score so when the time has passed you will be ready to purchase your dream home.

In a chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can qualify for a new mortgage through Fannie Mae guidelines Two years from the discharge date and four years from the dismissal date.
