How long do I have to wait to buy a home AFTER a short-sale or foreclosure?
Many people have gone through a Short-Sale or Foreclosure in the past several years, and are under a false impression that they have to wait a decade or longer to buy again. Here's the reality on waiting periods:
Foreclosure - 3yrs for FHA or Conv, 2yrs for VA
Short Sale - 2yrs with 20% down, or 3yrs with minimum down for FHA or Conv. VA loans require just 2yr wait with zero down.
Bankruptcy Chapter 7 - 2yrs after discharge
Bankruptcy Chapter 13 - 1yr after discharge
If you had "extenuating circumstances (medical, or other unusual one-time event that caused default), and can prove it, then the waiting period may be reduced. All of above assume that credit has been re-established
So ... Realtors, check your past client database. You may know several potential buyer who qualify to buy a home now, even with a tragic life event. With today's low housing prices and low rates, these buyers could end up with a better home and lower payment than before!!

Who We Are
Skyline Home Loans is a DIRECT LENDER.
This means we fund most of our loans through our own bank lines, have in-house underwriting & funding, along with very competitive terms and fees. We have assembled one of the strongest teams in the industry, which allow us to provide outstanding customer service.
Whether you are purchasing your first home, or your 10th rental property, we are committed to explaining all the available options and ensuring a smooth & timely closing.
What If I Lock and Rates Dip?
If you instruct us to lock your rate, and the next week the market improves enough, we may be able to reduce the rate we locked for you by re-negotiating with our investors.
We are monitoring the markets in real-time EVERY DAY, so if a change occurs, we will notify you. Any change does require enough market improvement (usually 1/4 - 3/8%) - call for details.
