FHA Personal Loans and mortgage question

Hey all , So i'm trying to obtain a mortgage in about six months.  I have about $4300 in debt that needs to be paid first.  I wanted to not use my savings because it's needed for down payment.  Would in matter to underwriters that I obtained a personal loan from my bank to pay these debts?  How would lenders view this bad or good ?

They're going to look at your total DTI, so owing CC's or a loan is the same in that regard.  The new inquiry and new account isnt so good bc they like to see 6 months of no new credit.


Good Luck!
