You have a couple choices such as leasing to own or finding a owner who will carry a loan (surprisingly called an owner-carry).

If your problem is that you have a limited credit history, a lender may be able to establish that you are a good credit risk by looking into payments that would not feed into your credit score, such as utility payments, rent payments, etc.
