Unfortunately, the courts have ruled that once the home is sold at foreclosure sale, it is too late to stop with a chapter 13 bankruptcy. This must have been filed before the sale date to do so. Your options now: talk to the bank to see who bought it, if any. Perhaps they did. Whomever the buyer was, perhaps they can sell it back to you or do a rent to own type deal so you can stay in the home.
