FHA DTI limits?

Hi,

 

We're getting our ducks in order to purchase our first home.  We are only using my husband since I'm self employed.  Here are his stats:

 

Savings for down: $35K 

Annual gross:  $100,700

Mid Fico - 675

Years at current job: 7+

Car payment:  $557

Credit card debt: paid off monthly

 

We're in San Diego and regular 1500-2000 sqft, 4bdrm/2bath homes are going for $400K - 500K range.  Can anyone tell me what the FHA limits are and if there is anything we can do to stretch those more?

Looks like their website says $697,500 for a single family in San Diego, you should be fine there :smileyhappy:

HI,

 

I closed on my house yesterday! My DTI was 44% on a 230k FHA backed loan. I live in the Portland area where housing prices average for around 300k. We(I) was approved using just my credit and income due to my wifes low credit scores. My income is around 65k 20 years on the job and nearly no credit card debt, two car payments....one for 337/month and the other for 370/month.

 

My mid fico score was 646

So if I understand correctly, the 29/41 DTI ratios are not set in stone for FHA?

no, they can stretch them a bit depending on how solid your credit looks.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
