I have gone thru a recent bankruptcy and a foreclosure 2 years ago, what options do I have in getting into small duplex rental investments and working my way up to larger multi- family in the future?

Holy crap, that formatted crazy.

BK can be anywhere from 2-4 years, foreclosure can be 2-7 years, and short sale can be 2 years. PM me with your email and i'll send you the correctly formatted table, sorry all.

@Jesse Gonzalez sorry but the forum software doesn't support tables. Do you have a link to a neutral (non advertising) site with those rules?

@Jon Holdman yes I do, and here it is.

That goes to fannie mae, the page is 487 that has the table

Thank you. No choice but to practice for a couple years I guess?

I really appreciate your response. Thanks again.

@Bill Schrimpf Sure they can, if they aren't selling to fannie and aren't underwriting to those criteria.
