Mortgage After Short Sale




Conventional Loan after Short Sale
Fannie Mae is unlike FHA, VA, and USDA where they have different mortgage lending guidelines on getting a conventional loan after short sale and deed in lieu of foreclosure. The Federal Housing Administration, FHA, looks at foreclosure and short sale the same as a regular foreclosure and the waiting period after short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure, foreclosure is all the same. FHA guidelines on waiting period after short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure, foreclosure is all three years to qualify for a FHA Loan: Three year mandatory waiting period after the recorded date of a foreclosure and deed in lieu of foreclosure and three year waiting period after the date of the short sale. There is a two year waiting period to qualify for a FHA Loan after bankruptcy. The waiting period starts from the discharge date of the bankruptcy.

With Fannie Mae, there is a 7 year waiting period after foreclosure to qualify for a conventional loan. However, to qualify for a conventional loan after short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure, the waiting period drops to a 4 year waiting period and only a 5% down payment is required. Unlike FHA, VA, USDA, short sale and deed in lieu of foreclosure is treated much differently with Fannie Mae and those who have a short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure are greatly rewarded than those who have a standard foreclosure.

If you Google ” Waiting Period to qualify for conventional loan after short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure”, you will get dozens and dozens of articles the first few pages that highlights that there is a 2 year waiting period to qualify for a conventional loan with 20% down payment. Unfortunately, all of those articles are now not accurate because Google has not updated the correct information or updated blogs from mortgage writers and bloggers. Just this past August, 2014, Fannie Mae has eliminated the 2 year waiting period after short sale and/or deed in lieu of foreclosure to qualify for a conventional loan with 20% down. Many home buyers who were nearing the 2 year waiting period mark after short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure or trying to save the 20% down payment were just absolutely devastated since Fannie Mae came up with new mortgage lending guidelines on waiting periods after short sale and deed in lieu of foreclosure to qualify for a conventional loan.
