While no one knows without reviewing a full application, you are presenting a less than ideal client with the bankruptcy so recent, making approval more difficult. Standard conventional loans require a minimum 2-year waiting period after discharge of a Chapter 13 before you can get a loan. FHA allows it after one year, and potentially now if certain criteria has been met. FHA allows for loan amounts up to $1,089,300 in Orange Co California. I suggest reaching out to a local mortgage broker in your area. Give them a full application, and let them zero in on your personal options. Good luck. I lend for homes in MN, IA, ND, SD, and WI.
