I have seen several properties that interest me, but do I need a good credit score to qualify?

Get professional help (after taking Tim's and Joseph's advice on getting a lender's opinion on your financing capabilities) from a Realtor who may be able to help you offer to buy a home from a seller who will allow you to lease with an option to buy, or buy it on contract until and when you qualify for financing.

Step #1 is always the same. Speak to a lender to see what you can qualify for and then start looking. Doing it your way can waste time and frustrate you. Just talk to a lender or two and see what you qualify for first.
