Bankruptcy is NOT a Fresh Start

Unless you consider starting over from scratch to rebuild your credit a fresh start.  In that case, it is, but that rebuilding takes time.  I know because I've been there!!

You'll have ten years to research mortgages because that's how long it will take for the bankruptcy to get off your credit record.  Just be prepared to pay a higher rate of interest than the majority.  What may help you is if you save up money to make a decent down payment on the house you want. 

Just giving you a bit of a reality check.
