It is possible to purchase a home after completing a bankruptcy. In most cases, because of the bankruptcy, the lender will require a higher down payment then if you have not gone bankrupt.
We recommend that you talk to your bank or a mortgage broker to determine what mortgage amount you will qualify for; then you will know how much more you will need to save to purchase that home.
