How Long After Filing Bankruptcy Can I Buy a House?




Filing bankruptcy doesn't have to mean the end of your homeownership dreams. While it will take some time to rebuild your credit and save up for a down payment, it is possible to buy a house after filing for bankruptcy.


The first thing you'll need to do is wait for the bankruptcy to be discharged. This usually takes about three to six months. During this time, you should work on rebuilding your credit by making all of your payments on time and keeping your balances low.


Once the bankruptcy has been discharged, you'll need to start saving up for a down payment. The size of the down payment will depend on the type of loan you qualify for, but it's typically around 10% of the purchase price.


If you can afford it, you may also want to consider buying a home before your bankruptcy is discharged.
