Is it possible to get financed for a home loan with poor credit?
credit score of 592

In fact, yes it is possible though I am sure you realize that the financing may not be under the best terms. Your financing may require a larger down payment, a higher interest rate, or other features to mitigate the risk of your credit status. First, there are lenders who specialize in what is generally called "sub-prime credit". Then there are lenders who offer FHA loans that will go down to a credit score of 580 (possibly lower but I do not know of any). Lastly, there are also lenders who specialize in providing you with a mortgage loan under your current credit, work with you on credit repair, and then turn you over to a "prime" lender where you can refinance under better terms.
I hope this helps.
Clear Lending/PRMI provide FHA loans down to 500 fico scores.
