Our credit scores are over 640, we have no collections or liens on file. We got a pre-approval letter from our mortgage broker who told us how much we would qualify for, and with the help of a realtor, we put an offer on a house which was accepted yesterday. The broker will start processing the loan and submitting it to underwriting this week. It's an FHA loan. I had a medical emergency in 2008 that led to the financial distress that caused the bankruptcy. I keep reading that FHA loans require a minimum of 2 years after a bankruptcy before one can get a loan. Our mortgage broker is a good, reputable branch manager and he's friends with my husband. He said maybe we can wait on the inspection until after our application has been through underwriting so we don't waste any money if it doesn't pass, yet he says he's 98% sure there will be no problems. Am I setting myself up for disappointment or are these expectations realistic? I'm afraid I'll be beyond anxious for the next week or longer until I get an answer from underwriting. I mean, he wouldn't give us a letter and let us put in an offer with a realtor if he wasn't confident we could get the loan, right?
