Answer
No down payment at all? How were you planning on buying?And the idea of opening up a 30 year mortgage so you can pay your credit card bill down by 25% is ludicrous. get real.

Mr. President - No More Bailouts lets have another GREAT Depression

Response
I also hear some credit card companies have started lowering their customer's credit availability without notice, and sometimes their credit limit goes below what their current outstanding balance is. Guess what happens then? Penalty fees.

588 credit score. 38,000 income plus 10,000 part time job which reports as non profit. single mom fi

Response
ditto. you shouldn't even be thinking of buying now. What fields do you work in? Are your jobs 100% recession-proof? What would happen to you if you lost one, or (heaven forbid) both of them? With a credit score that low you will not qualify for a good interest rate, your payment will be high, etc. etc.to raise your credit scores, just continue to pay your bills on time and lower your debt. There's no other magic trick to it, really.
