First, you will need to check your FICO scores, try to get a package that provides mortgage versions, I believe myfico has them. See where you are with them as lenders will use FICO scores, not the ones that you get here. Do some reading, I actually mean a lot of reading on how to improve your credit. You will need to do this first if your scores are not good enough. Then figure out how to come up with some down payment money, maybe there are things that you don't need that you can sell. If you are a trustworthy person, maybe if you have someone close to you perhaps they may be able to cosign on the loan if needed. There are many things to consider here, but this gives you a start. Start reading all that you can about all of this, it will help you figure out what you need to do.
