First off, I am sorry to hear of the recent hardships. I myself went through a divorce a few years ago and can understand completely your situation. You have my deepest empathy and support. You could always inquire about getting a rental property for a year or two while you build your credit, or if you would like to talk a little more in depth about your situation with me, maybe we can get you into a lease option. Either way I would love to talk to you more about what you can do now and down the road.
