Home equity loans have more stringent guidelines and most lenders will not approve without at least 3 years since discharge and acceptable re-established credit which meet score guidelines. FHA may be a better option as they will approve with 2 yrs out and 1 year with good re-established credit and assets.

For most investors there is a 2 year waiting period after your Bankruptcy has been discharged.
