Mortgage Financing After a Life Changing Event

Bankruptcy, foreclosure and other life events are bumps on the road to sustainable homeownership. With the recent events of the housing bubble and subsequent crash, many people may want a second chance to be homeowners. These “Boomerang Buyers” (a term often used to describe people who had to rent post-2008 but are returning to the homebuying market now that the economy has improved) may not know all the specifics of required waiting periods after their foreclosure, short sale or bankruptcy.The below chart covers the typical waiting periods associated with these types of events. Of course, as an experienced Loan Officer and Sales Manager at Academy Mortgage, I have seen exceptions occur. Working with the best mortgage team can help you get back into a home faster than you may have thought was possible.

Give me a call today so we can cover the specifics of your life event and set a plan to make you a homeowner again.
