Qualified mortgages require debt-to-income ratios of no more than 43 percent.
The debt-to-income ratio is a method for a lender to measure a borrower’s ability to manage the payments made every month in order to repay the money borrowed. To calculate a debt-to-income ratio, a lender will add up all of a borrower’s monthly debt payments and divide that number by the borrower’s gross monthly income. Gross monthly income is the amount of money a borrower earns before taxes and other deductions are removed.
If you find that your debt to income ratio is too high, you could:
- Use a larger downpayment to reduce the loan amount.
- look for a lower priced home
- Pay off the balances on your existing debt
- increase your monthly income
You can obtain a credit report at least once a year to check or correct errors or problems. The only official site for the free credit check is www.annualcreditreport.com. The report is free but actual scoring has a fee attached to it. You can check your report with the 3 major bureaus (Equifax, Transunion, and Experian) Be warned, your reports may not be identical, and if you do order a score, the system the lenders use to validate is slightly different from consumer purchased scores.
Remember, www.annualcreditreport.com is the ONLY guaranteed free site.
