You may be best served by renting in an apartment complex until you are able to buy.
Even if you are not able to get a typical mortgage, you may be able to get a NACA mortgage with no money down and 4% interest! Take a look:
It may take a few months to get qualified and in the meantime rent in a complex or you need to be very careful about renting from individual owners because some are in foreclosure and you will have to move again or allow showings to buyers in a Short Sale.
All the best,
