Not sure what you mean by "offered". But with any Fannie Mae loan, student loan payments need to be included in the debt to income ratio regardless if they are in deferment or not.
Deferred Installment Debt
Deferred installment debts, such as deferred student loans, must be included as part of the borrowerâ€™s recurring monthly debt obligations. If the borrowerâ€™s credit report does not indicate the monthly amount that will be payable at the end of the deferment period, the lender must obtain copies of the borrowerâ€™s payment letters or forbearance agreements so that a monthly payment amount can be determined and used in calculating the borrowerâ€™s total monthly obligations.
Exception: For a student loan, in lieu of obtaining copies of payment letters or forbearance agreements, the lender can calculate a monthly payment using no less than 2% of the outstanding balance as the borrower's recurring monthly debt obligation. However, if any documentation is provided by the borrower or obtained by the lender that indicates the actual monthly payment, that figure must be used in qualifying the borrower.

Dear John, Homepath loans are very ratio conscious, No you don;t have any room to go above 45% DTI, but how are you counting the income , maybe there is some room there. I would also suggest that you should have the lender run the automated approval as FNMA homepath loans , there are a lot of nuances on these loans and just becuase you have high scores does not mean you wil get an approval > i am not trying to scare you but rather prepare you . We are one of the biggest lenders for FNMA homepath loans in the country. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions.

Good Morning, Great Question and yes, your lender will be the best source for this answer. Sometimes it might be a tax credit. It should say on the closing statement where all the money is being allocated to. Good Luck DF... more
Assuming your new job's income qualifies, it'll boil down to the reason for the job gap, your new employment, and what you did prior to the job gap.
If you were laid off because of embezzlement, have been in jail for the past 6 months, and you are finally out on parole and are now working a part-time job being a cashier at a fast food establishment... very unlikely.
If you were laid off because of downsizing, have spent time looking for a new job, and have landed a full time salaried position with salary & aren't on a probationary period... then pretty likely.
So be prepared with those details and you should be able to get clear answers from most loan officers you speak with.

There are different types of loans, VA and USDA are no money down and the seller can pay most if not all of the closing costs. There is th fha 203k which you can get money towards repairs. Your best bet is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for to accomplish your goals.
The purpose of getting 2 mortgages is to avoid PMI. But I do not believe they are doing that anymore because too often the second mortgagee gets the short end during foreclosure. You may be able to get a single mortgage by putting down 10%.
Please email me, and I will put you in contact with a couple different lenders that may be able to help you. I would love to then help you find a home.
