That really depends on how much you are making and how much your debts are and also how much loan amount do you need. I would suggest you talk to a good lender, give all your financial to him/her in order to calculate your debt to income ratio.

Hello Janda, like the other agents previously mentioned-Yes it's best to go over your scenerio with a qualified loan officer. However, assuming your dept-income ratios are low enough to qualify including your current home & not your daughters morgage, a lender will need proof that you are not responsible for your daughters mortgage payment. A common way of proving this is buy obtaining 12 mth of cancel checks from your daughter to show she is the one making the payments. I've seen lenders take as low as 10 months of cancel checks. If it is too recent to provide this, than they will have to qualify you with your daughters liability as well.

Why not visit with any qualified loan officer(s) and see what exctly your budget can handle--however keep in mind--lenders have their income v. debt criteria for qualifying for the amount of a mortgage—oftentimes requiring that housing costs are not in excess of one-third of gross income in addition to a stipulated income v. overall debt-ratio. What lenders don’t know are borrowers’ non-debt spending habits, present and anticipated. You, the borrower, need to consider the economic factors of your lifestyle that would impact on your individual comfort level of affordability. A mortgage outside your budgetary constraints can dramatically alter your overall living conditions. So, be sure to factor micro and macro economic concerns into your mortgage amount deliberations--choose your lender with care.

Hi Jan,

Banks are very leery of putting people in financial positions tht could result in them becoming over extended. With this said, your ability to obtain additional funding will depend on a number of additional circumstances. income, debt, savings etc.

Your best course of action is to meet with a couple of lenders to find out what they can do for you.

Good luck
