Go to your local non profit housing group for credit counseling. The counselor will go over your credit report with you. They will tell you what you are doing wrong and what you should be doing. Listen to them and when your score is 640+ you can think of buying.

Just depends by what you mean by low? What is your middle credit score? Also, how is your income and rental history? Any assets/cash for down payment? There are several variables that are taken into consideration when you apply for a mortgage. You can read more about it here: http://www.trulia.com/blog/elliott_r_oliva/2011/12/pre-apppr…

Hi Ash,

There are lenders that will go as low as 560 on FHA loans.

I suggest you speak with a local mortgage broker about your situation.
