What to Know about Your Short Sale and Getting a Conventional Loan

Mortgage and Lending with www.DaveYourMortgageGuy.com - Legend Lending NMLS #293883


If you have had a short sale with your home in the past, it is important to know your options when getting a new mortgage.  For a conventional loan the minimum time line from when your Short Sale was finalized is 2yrs.  But here are the specifics to know:


1.      If your down payment is 20% or more, you must be 2yrs removed from your short sale.


2.      If your down payment is 19%-10%, you must be 4yrs removed from your short sale


3.      For less than a 10% down payment, you must be 7yrs removed from the short sale



Keep in mind these rules are different then the rules for a foreclosure.  If you had a foreclosure you must wait 7yrs.  If you have had a Deed in Lieu of foreclosure, the rules are the same as having a short sale.    When getting a new mortgage after having a short sale make sure you know the specific rules.
