It was a No. :( I'm disappointed. Especially since they didn't even bother to contact our current landlord for a rental reference OR talk to Dave's employer to verify his income. They just turned us down based on our credit. Yeah, we have bad credit. It's almost all past medical bills because we don't have health insurance and when the kids get sick we have to take them to the ER (well DUH healthcare in this country is a joke), and a few past utilities. Yeah, we haven't paid those bills.. because we were paying our freakin rent instead!!!! Ugh. And we ARE trying to pay those bills off. Two of the past utilities on the credit report will be removed soon, because we're paying them off.
Oh well. Onward and upward. We're going to keep trying. We plan to look a few more houses with the realtor on Tuesday evening. Maybe there is a better house out there. Or maybe we're supposed to stay here. I don't know. I hope not.
