You may be able to get the home you want if you offer to put down an extra month or 2 in payments before you move in. Also, be prepared to explain the reasons for your poor scores. You could also get a co-signer, if you have family members with good credit, who will be willing to help you.

try to rent from a private landlord that does not do a credit check or background check. evictions are tracked from many area housing courts and are reported along with credit scores and criminal background checks
any negative report combination with the 550 is going to be a red flag to most management

Going to be tough to rent with a credit score below average. Will depend on each individual landlord.
