For most bankruptcy, two years from discharge date. You will need to have your middle score at least a 640 to get an FHA loan.

What type of bankruptcy?    What was the date of discharge?    How are your credit scores currently?

I suggest that you discuss your situation withat least  two mortgage brokers and maybe even a credit union.  Due to amount of short sales, foreclosures and bakrupcies, the rules are in state of flux.

That depends...there are so many new loan packages and guidelines which change almost weekly. Speak to a local lender and see what he can do for you!

Good luck!
