We're getting conflicting information from friends and family, and are not ready to talk to the mortgage banker yet. 
 
Right now, I think that she'd get a preapproval, but not for $150K.
 
Your thoughts?

Re: DW getting closer...

Yeah with that income $150k would be a little too high...  $135k with 5% down on conventional & opting for a single premium PMI instead of the monthly PMI could be possible.  Or $135k with 3.5% down on FHA would be possible too.  I'm assuming a 2% tax rate (i.e. $150k would have $3k/year in property taxes).

 

Would you be on the mortgage/do you have income?

No, I won't be on the mortgage...yes, I have income, but I also have lots and lots of debt.  Smiley Sad

Re: DW getting closer...

Are your debt payments more than 40% of your income?

Yep.  Credit cards + car payment #1 + car payment #2 + loan payment + child support = 106% of my documentable income.

Re: DW getting closer...

Gotcha - paying off her credit card can qualify for a little more with conventional financing, and a co-signer could help increase qualifying income... but other than those not much else can increase the amount you can qualify for.

Re: DW getting closer...

I think that I'm going to send her to talk to the mortgage banker roughly 01 November.

 

I'm sure that she'll be pre qualified, but don't know for how many dollars...then we'll have to decide to purchase a home for x (amount of pre approval) or wait another year.

 

We shall see.

 

Thanks for your help!
