Here was our answer to Scott’s Question.
Under current lending guidelines, you can buy another home in 3 years after a short sale. After a foreclosure you have to wait 5-7 years in most cases.
(FHA’s current guidelines state that you can get an FHA loan immediately after a short sale, provided that you never missed a payment. If you were in default at the time of the short sale, then you have to wait 3 years before they will approve your loan.)
But, what if did miss a payment and you want to buy another home sooner than that?
There are loopholes in the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Remember, the law was written to protect consumers. It wasn’t written to protect the lenders!
You can use the law to your advantage to get a short sale removed from your credit history. Then, you can fix any other negatives on your credit report.
After that, your credit should be good enough to qualify to buy another home.
Here is why you can have the short sale removed from your credit report. The Fair Credit Report Act requires lenders do certain things before reporting negative credit.
If you lender misses any of these steps, then they are not allowed to post that item to your credit report. Don’t kid yourself; the lenders make mistakes like this all the time.
They are more concerned with getting paid than making sure every credit report is done perfectly. A good lawyer that specializes in this can help you.
They will know the intricacies of the law and help you get the short sale removed from your credit so you can buy another home.

Al Anderson and RE/MAX Results are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
