Showing Off Spencer-Discovering Spencer, the Brookfields, Worcester County, Massachusetts and New England: The Big Question~How long after a Short sale, Foreclosure, Bankruptcy...

The Big Question~How long after a Short sale, Foreclosure, Bankruptcy...

One of the top questions I get as a Realtor in this market is, "How long do I have to wait after a short sale, foreclosure, or bankruptcy before I can buy a home again?"

In this crazy Real Estate market, high unemployment, and struggling economy, this seems to be one of my most asked questions.  One of my Mortgage friends supplied me with the following chart.
