Your Debt to Income Ratio (DTI) is
When you put in an mortgage application, lenders evaluate your debt-to-income (DTI) to help determine whether you can afford to take on another payment.
Your DTI ratio and credit history are the two most important financial health factors all lenders consider when determining if they will lend you money.
Your DTI compares how much you owe each month to how much you earn. The lower your debt-to-income ratio is the less risky you are to lenders. The same goes with your credit score, the higher it is the less risky you are to the lenders.
Maximum DTI for VA home loans and FHA Loans will follow the AUS (automated underwriting system) recommendation or Manual Underwriting requirements, as applicable. Usually the highest ratios are 43% - 50%.
Maximum DTI as is determined by AUS. Usually the highest ratios are 43% - 50%.
