Joint morgage-what score do they look?

[ Edited ]
Since wife and I want to applay for morgage loan, what scores are they gona look?
 
Is there an option for morgage to be only on me, since I'm in upper 600 and she is lower 600's with some bad things on her CR?
 
She is also maiking more money them me.
 
The only anvantage is if we do it toghether we will have better debt to income ratio.
 
Thank you!

My husband and I are shopping for a loan too and the broker I spoke with said that the higher income earner's scores will be viewed more heavily. THey will still looks at all three CRAs.

How much time do you have?
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

Our broker suggested that, if one of us were hourly, that person could temporarily cut back their hours to decrease their income.  I don't know if that will owrk in your situation, but one possibility.

Why would you want to decrease your income?

Our incomes are very close to each other, so the impact was not going to be as great.

But it will reduce the amount they will loan you, and increase the debt to income ratio
