FHA Loan Right After Short Sale?

Short sales are a problem for sellers who want to get into a new home right away. Besides the probable impact to your credit score and the issue or rebuilding it, there are normally the mortgage loan guidelines that require a waiting period of 2 or more years after a short sale, depending on the buyer and the loan.

But for certain buyers, there could be an option:  If you are a borrower who has not suffered delinquent loan payments, but has suffered a market devaluation of your current home, you could be eligible for an FHA loan immediately upon sale of your current home IF:

1. You aren't selling your home and buying a new one simply to take advantage of today's lower prices;
2. You purchase at a reduced price a similar or superior property within a reasonable commuting distance;
3. The short sale is for your primary residence.
4. You are current on your mortgage payments and no 30-day late payments.
5. Your home is not pre-foreclosure (with a Notice of Default recorded against it).
6. You have no late payments on installment debt prior to the short sale.

The borrower's reasons for selling would have to be approved on the new loan's underwriter, but for example, if you're moving for school reasons for your child, or job relocation reasons for yourself, perhaps this loan is for you.
Please give me a call or e-mail me to see if this would work for you!
