After handling the stress of getting rid of your debts, and then spending a few years building up your new credit history, it's finally time for you to take that big step applying for a mortgage after bankruptcy. Obviously your lenders are going to look at your financial history, which can represent a problem for you, but there are things you can do to handle this in a way that will make it clear all of those problems are behind you and you are ready to take on a home loan.

The first thing I have to point out is that if you're serious about this then two years need to have passed between the time you finished declaring and the time you fill out a home loan application. Lenders won't take you seriously until two years has passed, they want to see that over that two year period you have built up a history of on time payments and things have changed for you.

In your application they'll be looking at all the things they would be looking at for any other applicant. They'll look at how stable you are, how long you've had your current job, how strong your income is, and of course your credit history. When the issue of your bankruptcy comes up you should have a short, approximately two sentence, explanation prepared for why you had financial problems in the past, such as divorce, medical bills, etc. They will care about this and want to know why this happen/why it won't happen now, but you also don't want to bring too much focus on this. You want to point out your strengths and why you think you can handle a mortgage, such as a strong income, and all you've done to rebuild your credit in recent years.

This is a big opportunity for you, and can be very intimidating, but don't let it scare you. This is a very common occurrence that lenders see regularly, and you've come a long way since then. Be confident and point out your strengths and you should have no problem applying for a mortgage after bankruptcy.

The best way to be prepared is to be informed. Visit my site for more information about bankruptcy mortgage applications and become informed about everything pertaining to getting an after bankruptcy mortgage.
