Zillow Advice: Buying Process - IF I HAD A FORECLOSURE IN 2007 COULD I STILL BUY A HOUSE NOW THAT I AM SETTLED DOWN? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/IF-I-HAD-A-FORECLOSURE-IN-2007-COULD-I-STILL-BUY-A-HOUSE-NOW-THAT-I-AM-SETTLED-DOWN/347032/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate You have to wait minimum ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/IF-I-HAD-A-FORECLOSURE-IN-2007-COULD-I-STILL-BUY-A-HOUSE-NOW-THAT-I-AM-SETTLED-DOWN/347032/ You have to wait minimum 3 years after foreclosure to buy a house assuming you didn't have any other late payments. <br/>The easiest way is to start building your credit right after the foreclosure. Do you know your current FICO score?

With a short sale, it's about 2 years. Better for people to short sale vs foreclosure.

If you have been out of bankruptcy/foreclosure for 24 months then you can qualify for a new loan...if everything else since then has been paid on time and is current. I have a friend who owns a mortgage company named Swift Home Loans. There is a link to his site from mine, and they also do free credit repair work if you need it.
