I am wanting to know what the general time frame is for me to qualify for a purchase of a house. I completed a CH7 last year, was discharged in 12/10. Did not re-affirm the house. Just completed a short sale on the house and am currently renting. I'm estimating the timeframe to be 2-5 years before I can qualify for a house but would like to know a more definite answer. i have already begun to rebuild my credit and at 690 score.
