First step is to talk to a local lender who can review your credit info and see what you can do to increase your scores. (Byt the way, that seems to be a very wide range). Wondering if maybe there are some mistakes in there that could be reviewed to help bring your scores up? A good local lender will sit down with you and review all of your financial info. In addition to having decent credit, (at least a 620-640 score), you'll need to show decent employment/income history, $$ in savings for down payment and closing costs, decent debt to income ratio, etc. The key to buying a home is being very very good with your money and your credit score -- which means being on time on paying bills and paying down or paying off some of your debts and SAVE SAVE SAVE!

Hi Krista,

FHA is the best route. It does require 3.5% down, but perhaps you have a family member or friend that can gift you the money? Don't forget about closing costs. Sellers assist can take care of that. If you buy this year, you may be eligible for up to an $8,000 tax credit. See what I am getting at? Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. ... more
