On July 29th, 2014 Fannie Mae made an unprecedented move to loosen up qualifying guidelines for borrowers that included mortgage debt in a bankruptcy by removing the waiting period for any foreclosure that occurred after the mortgage debt was discharged through a bankruptcy.
In a lending environment where it seems banks are less and less willing to lend, this opens up a huge opportunity to the many victims of the economic downturn that began in late 2007, and somewhat continues even today.
Short Sale Waiting Period Changes
The removal of the waiting period for foreclosure, short sale or deed in lieu after bankruptcy seems to be slow to surface due to another “waiting period” change that is scheduled to take place over the weekend of August 16th.
Desktop Underwriter (DU) will be modified to remove the ability to buy again 2 years after a short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure if you have a 20% down payment and a minimum 680 credit score.
The loan to value requirement will be removed, allowing borrowers to buy with as little #$%$ down, however, the waiting period is extended from 2 years to 4 years.
This move creates consistency in Fannie Mae’s waiting period policy to 4 years across the board for any default included in a bankruptcy, short sold, or transferred back to the lender through a deed in lieu of foreclosure.
ah ha! finally a high roller who posts his trades! all the others who have come and gone won big on every trade, but refused to post trades as they happened
and you think people have trouble affording the value menu now!
