To what extent is mortgage qualification dependent upon income?

Help the community by answering this question:


Getting qualified for a home mortgage is like completing a puzzle where all the pieces must fit altogether.

Mortgage qualification depends on the following:
1. Monthly Income
2. Total monthly debt (credit cards, loans, unsecured debt)
3. Qualifying credit score
4. Down payment required depending on the loan program
5. Liquid assets or reserves that is seasoned in the bank for at least 2 months
6. Employment history of at least 2 years on the same line of work and same type (W2 or 1099)
7. Income tax returns
8. Once the complete file is ran on the AUS (Automated Underwriting System), it must have an "approve" result.

Looks confusing? Don't fret because I do this all the time. I pre-approve clients from first -time home buyers to repeat purchasers (2nd home or Investment properties).

Let me know how I can help!

Mortgage qualification depends upon income because a mortgage consultant needs to determine the borrower is able to repay the loan and will not default. That is why, when doing a pre-qualification, the loan officer will pull your credit report and will ask you to bring all income paperwork. He/she will then look at your debt vs. income and will let you know how much you qualify for based on the amount of money you have left from your current debt and what your income is per month.
