You're score is currently too low for a mortgage. Get it up to a 580 and you may qualify for an FHA loan. A company many of my clients have used is The Lenders Network, they refer people with credit issues to lenders that can help. And they have a great credit repair guide for free.

Good Luck!

I think it is great. While sellers have to be more realistic on how long it will take to sell their home (3-6 months vs 1 month) as well as being realistic on what their home is worth; homes in the Portland OR area are still selling at an appreciating rate. Now is the best time to entice investors with great home prices for rental properties. For as most people know as home sales slow down, the rental market speeds up, allowing for higher rents. Also as most know real estate is cyclical and eventually the pendulum will swing the other way and some of those who invested in a low priced property today will get the payoff later. ... more
