How long is required to wait until you can buy after a short sale?
In 2011, the mortgage company stopped reflecting payments because I filed joint chapter 7 bankruptcy. We continued to pay on mortgage until 2014, when we put the house on the market. It took until 2015 for the house to finally sell via short sale. It appears we will be able to buy fairly routinely in two years because of the way things were reporting. My credit score thankfully shows fairly good at 680. So in two years should be able to improve to over 700. Is this correct?
