Trying to buy a home w/bad credit?

I am in Michigan, we are 2nd in the US in forclosures, I have a 610 mid score with a not so good credit history.

I've considered doing a personal loan for the down payment, but I don't have any collateral to stand on. The home has equity in it and will most likely be worth at least 50thousand more than what their asking in a year or so. The home is currently bank owned. Has anyone heard of a lease with guarantee to buy? I wanted to try that as a possible option.
