If I had sold my home in a “short sale” how long do I have to wait to be eligible to purchase a new home?

Fannie Mae views a short sale the same way as a foreclosure, where you would have to adhere to the “seasoning” rule. If you have 20% to put down on the new home, you cannot apply until a full two years has passed. If you have less than 20% down, you will have to wait for four years.
