I would suggest imposing your own limitation below whatever they will max you out at.

Speal with a Lender to go over your particular situation. Depending on the situation, mid 50%'s is max DTI.

To prevent borrowers from getting into homes they cannot afford, the maximum back-end DTi is 41%. FHA is pretty flexible with the DTI limits, and I have seen approvals with DTI as high as 55%. Feel free to contact me at 773-739-5169 or apply online at http://www.guaranteedrate.com/markghaowi if you would like be pre-qualified for a FHA mortgage.
