Question about Credit Cards

I want to get a house for next year and I know that I qualify for one right now.  However I decided to wait.  But Fico is saying what is hurting my credit score the most is that I don't have any revolving credit.  I have not had a credit card in over 10 years.  Scared to get one.  However I heard that if I get one it will boost my credit score tremondously, plus my auto loan will be paid off by the end of 2012.  Any advice???

Starting Score: 565
Current Experian Score: 634 (Lender pull)
Current Equifax Score: previous 668, 680 as of 11/12/13 lender pull
Current Transunion Score: previous 675,677 as of 09/23/13
Goal Score: 750
