Hi Patty- This is a tough one, but something might be do-able. I work for a decent-sized mortgage company with 2 offices in Maine.
It may have to be a nonprime loan, OR depending on your time frame you can start building some credit, so the bureaus can then arrive at a score and history for you. This might take 3-4 months though...
OR you could maybe get into a home that will do seller-financing. In any of these cases, I might be able to help you out. What towns/ areas are you looking into? What price range?
Thanks, and good luck,
