How long do you have to wait after a foreclosure before you can secure another mortgage?

I had a foreclosure 3 years ago on an FHA loan for some rental property I owned. It wasn't our primary residence.

The answer is it depends on the down payment. If you can come up with 20% to 30% down, you might be able to buy right away with a higher rate interest mortgage. If you'd like another FHA loan, you'll have to wait 3 years.
