Good afternoon, Curious. Here are Ten tips for repairing your credit history, raising score http://goo.gl/INE80 , Following these steps works! You might also want to review the Trulia Blog "I have bad credit and no savings. Can I get a home or am I stuck renting?" in the link below. Once you have read these, I suggest that you talk to a mortgage banker for a lender who is making loans to borrowers with middle credit scores of 600+ FICO. You generally have to be 3 full years past a foreclosure. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.

Good advice from Lowell. Another option available to you is owner financing a home until your credit qualifies for a loan. Generally owners offering owner financing require $5,000 down or more. Check SpartanburgOwnerFinancing dot com for a list of homes in the area.
