Uneven Scores on new Report

I just got my new scores today and they are as follows. TransUnion 592 Equifax 528 Experian 560
 
I am wanting to buy a home. Would I have any luck on getting approved with numbers like these?
 

All three reports mirror each other in all the accounts, balances, etc. Why would the Equifax be so much lower than the others?

EQ hates lates.
 
ETA:  Sorry, sent too quickly.  EQ was historically my LOWEST score.  However, as my lates have aged to 3+ years my EQ is now my highest.  EQ was also the first to dump my 2001 pre-consolidation student loans.  When I was at my worst my EQ was 443 compared to high 400s for EX and TU.
 
I apologize if you don't have any lates, but that's one thing that EQ seems to really knock people for.

Re: Uneven Scores on new Report

As for your other question, better placed on the Mortgage forum. Lots of experts over there.  On the surface, your best bet sounds like an FHA loan, but there are other requirements there as well...
