We bought a home which was foreclosed and butchered by the previous owner It was in such bad shape that we could not get a mortgage on it at the time, so we paid cash and put another $40,000 into it for repairs.

We would like to put a mortgage on it now and cash out the money we have spent. So far I haven't been able to get a conventional mortgage because of a 6 month waiting period from the date the house was originally purchased.

Does anyone know of a loan program which allows owners to get a mortgage in less than 6 months?

Have you ever seen this done? Every thing I have checked says the FHA loan for a cash out prior to 12 months is based on 85% of the sales price of the house, which would not include anything spent on repairs.
