I would try and talk to a lender/mortgage broker about the options you have as far as getting a loan with poor credit. You may have to make a larger down payment but it is possible.

Please refer to my blog post about getting a loan with bad credit. (Link below)

But again, the best way to get the best answer you seek would be speaking to a lender and see what happens. If you do not currently have a Realtor that you're working with, please contact me. I would be happy to assist you with any further real estate needs or questions you may have.
Good Luck!

Kia, can you get a co-signer, pay a larger security deposit? If none of these are options you will need to write a personal letter to the prospective landlord and explain your situation in entirety. Although there are a lot of landlords who will not accept you, there are others willing to look at the situation as case by case. There also should be apartment complexes willing to work with you as well.

In the last 2 years I have placed 6 or so people in rentals that are in your current situation. You just have to find one that isn't all about dollars Kia.

Best of luck to you,

Rob
