IT seems like your credit report needs some serious work to improve not only your scores but your entire credit profile. Here's my advice based on 23 years working as a mortgage professional:
It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.
Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.
First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.
Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.
I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.
Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams.
The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.
The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.
If you would like I can put you in touch with a solid mortgage broker to review your information and guide you for the best results if your goal is to find an approval for a loan. He is located near Cedar Park-Leander that you could also speak to him in person. Feel free to give me a call or email.

We go down to 600. 620 is easier and 640 is the best deal.
Now, maybe there are some things you can do to raise the scores quickly?
Do you have any credit card debt? Paying that down can get your scores to move fast.

You should 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+ (mid score), consult with a mortgage officer to see what you qualify for.
