I am a little confused upon your situation. FHA is not based on the amount of credit you have. There are ways that our company can get you approved. Please call me.Tim MillerAdvisors Mortgage Group LLCNMLS# 132510609-352-5367

They are loans that use alternative credit, call some one from our panel or a local mortgage broker and get more details...good luck

You can use alternative credit with FHA, but it is easier to qualify if you have more credit. Opening a secured credit card should boost your score but likely will take 6+ months and it also depends on what else is your credit is showing during that period. I posted a blog here a while back: First Steps that might give you other ideas. If you are ready to apply, there may be other ways to make it work without waiting for the effect of another credit card.
