Under current rules, from the date of the signing/notarization of the Deed-in-Lieu, You would need to wait two years for VA, Three years for FHA or USDA and four years for Conventional Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans. HOWEVER, there are programs available for you in as little as one day. Typically these types of programs require a larger down payment, have higher interest rates and may include adjustable rates, but they will allow you to buy a home now. I've done a few of these in recent years, and once your penalty period has elapsed, you can refinance into a more traditional loan with lower rates.
