Re: looking to finance a vehicle.
Leasing wouldn't impact your DTI as much as financing and I am sticking to my statement. And your income will be fine to qualify for the house you need. Only half the MSRP shows up on my credit report for a 36 month lease along with a lower monthly payment than financing. I leased in Nov and I am closing the first week of February! Honestly I wish I was able to lease sooner as I put tons of money into maintenance and repairs and it still broke down on me with enormous repairs before I could pay it off. I won't have to worry about all that with a lease which means more money in my pocket! :-)
