Mortgage Monday: Application Time Frames for Foreclosure and Short Sale

mortgage insuranceThis on the Mortgage Monday show Jim Cardinal and Alexis Meeks discuss the time frames you can apply for a mortgage after a foreclosure or short sale. They also discuss how a foreclosure or short sale affects your credit and ability to apply for a new mortgage.

For bankruptcy the waiting period is not as along as a foreclosure. You will have to wait two years for a FHA loan, two years for a VA loan and four years for a conventional loan.

Foreclosures have a little longer waiting period, three years for a FHA loan, two years for a VA loan and seven years for a conventional loan.
