High DTI

Has anyone recently gotten an FHA or Fannie/Freddie loan with high DTI? and by high I mean over 50%. I'm afraid when we go to get a loan, even after paying of our CC substantially we won't qualify. Do lenders look at CC debt differently then an auto loan? Most of our debt is going to be auto loans and Mortgage loans. I would hate to have to wait until I pay off my cars in order to get a loan.....

debt is debt they add all of your minimum monthly payments and compare it to your income for your dti.  The only thing different is that for most conventional loans if your auto or personal loans have 8 payments or less, they do not include those in your dti.  Call the bank or broker you would likely apply with to find out their policies because they can change and/or add their own guidelines to fha.  I will assume your car payments are a lot more than your monthly credit card payment so why not pay the cars down to 8 payments or less

Our DTI is at 48%. The only debt we have is our auto loan and in order to qualify for our home loan we have to pay it off by close of escrow.

Not over 55%. Unfortunately I just bought the car and my wife's car is a lease. By my calculations it'll be close to 53% w/ the new mortgage.....

Re: High DTI

would your wife be capable to "buy"out the lease under her name?  this would only work if you are in a non community property state if you were gonna go FHA

Well considering I want to use my wife's income to qualify it would have to stay on her credit. B/W the both of us our DTI is 30% front end and with a new mortgage it's going to go about 53 to 55%..... I guess I'm just going to have to apply when i get the down and see what happens.....

For those that have closed recently, what was your DTI w/ the new mortgage?

Re: High DTI

Would a high credit score offset a high backed DTI (b/w 50-55%)?  I am really worried that my DTI is going to kill me when I go to apply for a loan!!!
