How to Buy a Home after a Financial Hardship
Having a financial hardship in the past does not mean that you cannot qualify for a home mortgage.
Many homebuyers believe that you are penalized, or have increased rates and costs if have had a bankruptcy, foreclosure, short sale, or deed in lieu in the past.
It doesn’t help that many loan officer and lenders either do not understand the guidelines, or simply choose to not work with homebuyers with a financial hardship event in the past.
Quite simply, the only penalty following a significant financial hardship is a waiting period. Do the time, and you’ll be just fine!
