Hi Paula,

Talk to a direct lender and ask about their FHA programs. FHA doesn't really look at the credit scores, they tend to look at the overall picture if you can pay the mortgage. =)
If your credit score is low because you pay cash for items and don't really use any credit cards, you can see if a lender can use alternative credit. Being, receipts of rent payments, gas, water or paid phone bills.
