Interestingly, I recently had a client that was able to purchase a new home just two short years after his short sale. A wonderful confluence of events allowed him to use his VA eligibility to purchase with nearly zero money down.
He was also able to begin the mortgage process several weeks BEFORE the two-year anniversary date of his short-sale closing, so that he was able to close in a matter of days after the anniversary date passed.
