Legally there’s no reason why you can’t buy a house. Practically speaking, it will depend on how much of a down payment you’ve saved and your employment stability, among other things.

Here’s a tip: you will likely be charged a higher rate of interest due to your bankruptcy. The lender will suggest you lock in for 3 or even 5 years. Instead, ask for one year. When the year is up if you haven’t had any payment problems you should qualify for a better interest rate.
