Hi Kristin,
Unfortunately, until your are able to raise your credit score, I don't believe you'll be able to get a mortgage. I'd be happy to give you contact info for a few lenders I work with frequently though who might be able to guide you in ways to improve your credit score. Please feel free to email me directly.

But remember, tax assessed value and appraised value are typically not the same as the two look at different things to get a value for the home.

You may also want to take into consideration the condition of the home and location when making an offer.
