  • Can I still use my VA eligibility if I filed for bankruptcy?
  • How much money do I need to buy a home?
  • What is the difference between a foreclosure and a short sale?
  • I haven’t been discharged from my bankruptcy yet, are there things I can still do now to prepare me to buy a home again after discharge?
