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
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.....
