Re: Bad credit due to loss of job...
I would advise you to find something to rent that is closer to your jobs. Maybe even sell your current home...

The drive alone has got to be costing you a fortune. I think you will have a very hard time buying until you get your scores to 620 or better. At that point you would qualify for FHA financing since the new home will be a primary residence closer to your employer.

Good luck man!
