It is possible to get an FHA loan down to a 500 fico. But all past collections must show zero balance. You must have 10% down payment. Provide proof of rental history.

Rent to own is risky and limits your choice of property to a very bare minmum

Steve Simpson answered:
As most of the folks indicated there is a very limited market of ‘lease option’ homes in this market. As suggested, you should find something you like and rent. If it is a home you really love, you can always ask the owner if they are interested in structuring a “lease option” arrangement.
If they do be sure you get competent legal representation by someone who is knowledgeable in constructing these options.

Hey Theresa,

It might be difficult to try to match that exact floorplan with another house on the market. I would suggest waiting for another home in the neighborhood to come out or check out homes from the same builder as Linda suggested. Ask your Realtor to keep you updated on any new listings that come out on the market and to update you daily since the market is a bit crazy right now. Hope you're able to get the house that you want! Best of luck.
