How do you know your credit is bad? How bad is it?
Be happy to help you on the way t homeownership. Spend less, save more.
That's the short term. Long term, you need to fix your credit so you can stop throwing away money and buy a home. Now is the time as interest rates are really low. If Congress doesn't get their act together, it's going to be bad news for all interest rates and buyers. So act soon.
Best of Luck,
Each landlord will make their own decisions on what they find acceptable, but a tenant with bad credit will find it difficult to find someone willing to extend them even more credit. Would you loan money you need to someone with a history of not paying their debts?
My suggestion is to go to work on your budget and get your credit headed in the right direction. Pay your bills early for a while and save some money. This will both help your credit and improve your odds of getting a new place.
yes, renting a home would just be like renting an apartment in that they will be looking at all 3 main points, work history, credit and income. Why is your credit so screwed up? Have you pulled it lately?
