Real Estate Home Mortgages/Refinance after short sale


We completed a short sale in April, 2011.  Last October we purchased a condo and my father qualified for the mortgage.  The down payment came from our funds and we have been making the mortgage and property tax payments.  My father signed a quit claim deed in 11/12 but we have not recorded it.

Our down payment was more than 20% and the condo has increased in value.  Our FICO score is approx. 750.  PITI is approx. 28% of our income.  How can we get this condo into our names?  

Thank you.


Hi Jill,
If this transaction is in California, I can help you complete this process.  It would involve refinancing the property.  If you have 20% equity in the property, I have a loan program that will refinance the condo into your name, with the short sale at least 2 years old.  Make sure on the date of the short sale.  A property profile will confirm the date it was sold.  Please call me at 800-785-4952 for assistance.  Thank you.
