Also know that some states do not allow this.
If you are serious about this, it would depend on what your score was and how bad your credit history is.
I would find the cheapest rent you can get in order to save up the money for a house.
If you have no credit cards, open an account at a Credit Union.
Then after you have Direct Deposit to your checking account for a year (some maybe less depends on how much a week you deposit) open THEIR Credit Card, ask for just a 500 amount. Then work up from there.
Credit is hard to advise on without specifics.
But steer clear of Rent to own unless you have a Real Estate Agent AND a Lawyer to do the paperwork.... YOUR AGent and Lawyer, NOT theirs !
