Unless you had a really serious issue you can document (loss of a job ot serious illness or death of someone who lived in the home) the only option I know of would be if you are eligible for a VA mortgage, or possibly USDA if the mortgage had been current for 12 months prior to the short sale (which is virtually unheard of). Otherwise, plan on 3 years minimum from the time title to the property was actually transferred and recorded (just had situation like that closed last week).

More than likely, No!. For conventional financing, you need to wait 4 years unless you meet the "extenuating circumstances guidelines" exception (very few actually do), then you can do 2 years.. this is assuming you meet all other eligibility requirements such as minimum acceptable credit scores, income, and debt ratios.. Also, with enough down payment, there are some "Non-Conforming" loan products that will finance you right now.. and if you wait a year, you can go FHA... I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
