When you say "bad credit" - what's the issue? Past Due Accounts, charge-offs, bad debt - or just no credit?
There are many ways to get credit re-established. An option may be for you to look for Seller-Financing or Lease with Option.
Contact a local REALTOR - they will be able to assist.
Best of luck,
