High DTI Mortgage

Asked by adminuser, 53215 Sat Dec 7, 2013

I'm looking to get a mortgage with a high DTI - approximately 60%. My scenario includes the following:
-Current DTI of approximately 60% (includes the approximate monthly payment of principal, insurance and taxes on a $145K loan)
-DTI does not include student loan payments. Student loan currently in deferment status through June, 2015.
-DTI does not include monthly 401K loan payments.
-Foreclosures on credit report from July, 2007 & Bankruptcy in June, 2008. No late or missed payments on credit report since October, 2008, when bankruptcy was discharged.
-Middle FICO score is about 640.
*Willing to pay higher interest rate for alternative financing*

Help the community by answering this question:


You will probably have to lower the loan amount. It's possible to get a loan with 50% (sometimes 55%) DTI but the rules are changing in Jan where you will have to be below 43%. I would be happy to play with the numbers for you and try to get you a loan, but you will have to act fast because some lenders are already implementing these new rules. I work with over 40 lenders, which allows me to provide my clients with more opportunities. Feel free to contact me with questions or to get started!

Thank you,

You might want to talk to someone from Waterstone Mortgage...they work "outside the box" in terms of getting loans for buyers with unique situations. Give Kurt Waltenberger a call at 262-938-9259. Here's a link to his website: http://www.kurtwaltenberger.com
