With a credit score of 619 can I get a home loan?

I have three unpaid medical bills from four years ago on my account. I was going to pay it off (I can afford to now) but I've hread it will lower my score and make it more recent. I also have student loans of 50,000. I just paid down my two credit cards to 10 % of my available credit. I'm going to wait... show more I have three unpaid medical bills from four years ago on my account.
