Applying for a Home Loan

Buy a Home After Bankruptcy

Great news, and contrary to what you may have heard, you can purchase a home after filing bankruptcy!  How soon after bankruptcy?  That depends greatly on the type of bankruptcy you filed and what type of loan you are considering.  Some home loans, such as those that are backed by the government, can be granted in the first year after bankruptcy.  If you’re hesitant to file bankruptcy because you fear there may be a problem buying a home in the future, talk with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer at Debt Advisors. 

What You Need to Know to Buy a House after Bankruptcy

Most people who filed for bankruptcy don’t have the twenty percent down payment needed to get a home loan at a competitive interest rate.

While a bankruptcy stays on your credit report for ten years, there are mortgage lenders willing to work with buyers seeking home loans after bankruptcy. Important points to remember include:

  • A stable employment history
  • A sufficient income to pay the mortgage

 
If you want to buy a home after bankruptcy, be wary of subprime lenders. Avoid their excessive processing fees and prepayment penalties. Financial discipline and a good down payment will open you up to a range of affordable options.

  • 5 star review  Mike Georg was extremely helpful during the entirety of my process. He made sure I understood exactly what was going to happen and he was always there to answer any questions I may have had. I really like the fact that I didn’t have to pay all out of pocket at once. Their payment plan made it easy for me to pay what I had to without breaking the bank. I’m completely satisfied with the level of professionalism that everyone in the office has. Even to this day I’m able to get in touch with them which I’m really grateful for. I’d definitely recommend them to my family and friends. If your someone who’s looking to get out of debt but are skeptical, you’ll have no worries here with Debt Advisors. The process is quick and easy.

  • 5 star review  I still remember the day when I started my bankruptcy back in 2016. I selected Debt Advisors because a good friend of mine had recommended Atty Mike Georg to me. After we met I was glad that I did select Debt Advisors for many reasons. Mainly, it was the professionalism and care that Mike and his staff showed me throughout the entire process. It felt good knowing that my situation would be taken care of efficiently and in a timely manner. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged Attorney Mike Georg and Debt Advisors have been there for me in 2018 and this 2020. Both times I've needed professional help with things like providing me with documents and forms that I've needed from my case. I strongly encourage anyone looking for debt consultation to visit Debt Advisors for help. They're great at what they do!

  • 5 star review  Bankruptcy is never fun, but this Law Office made it so much easier. If I ever had any questions at all they were answered timely. They even helped me through a rough time when I ended up having to pay taxes and had a big medical exspense too! They were always kind and never made me feel bad for having to do the bankruptcy. They were sympathetic to why and just helped me through it! I recommend them to anyone I know going through this or having to start this process. I know of two of the people I referred who used htem and loved them too! Thank you Debt Advisors Law Offices! Jeremy and Angel thank you personally!

  • 5 star review  I can confidently say that Debt Advisors is NOT in the business of taking advantage of you in your current situation. Debt Advisors is in the business of helping you get in a better place than you are now. I was there, constantly worrying about this large amount of debt that I owed. Feeling sick to my stomach and unable to sleep at night. Then I talked to Mike. He is genuine and honest. Having him in my corner took this huge weight off my chest. If you are in this place, I highly recommend giving Debt Advisors a call, it is the first step in the right direction.
