Credit score of 0
I have a credit score of 0. How do you get a ZERO?!? I want to establish credit score so I can buy a home. What is the best way to do that? Arn't you automatically born with some amount of credit? Is there some kind of Base score for being alive?

No, There is no base score....

Credit history is just that,  The history of your credit. 

If you have a 0 score it means you have no credit history.  Its also called a "Thin File" 

You will need to build your credit since buying a home will be impossible with out credit unless you pay cash. 

Search the articles and blog posts for info on "Thin Files" and how to build your credit.  It ususally starts with a secured credit card. 

Good luck
