That might keep "Uncle Sam" away from you for a while. And yes I think that you will be able to get a loan, but if you have less than 7 yrs credit history, your rates will be pretty high, regardless of credit rating. Good luck.
He's dead on. Either follow this advice or get someone to co-sign for you.
