SS after BK?



We filed BK that was discharged in May 11'.  Earlier this year we tried to SELL our rental property to a relative but unfortunatly and NOT surprisingly it did not appraise and the deal went dead.  It's been 4 months now and I thought about doing SS.  Balance 130k; appraisal value 105k (this past May).


Since relatives didn't qualify the spent a little bit of their $ for down payment and do not have enough for the 5% down. 


It is my understanding that SS could take upto 6 months to get approved, if at all.  Relatives will have $$ in maybe 2 more months. And the attempted regular sale was only 4 months ago.. 


Because the regular sale was only a few months ago.. Can we move forward with SS when relatives have $$ for dp?


How long should we wait if it's too soon?


Thank you in advance.
