Both answers you got can be correct. Usually an average of two years is used to calculate income, unless Fannie Maes desktop underwriter only asks for one year and the lender you are working with follows DU findings. I am in northern VA and work for a lender that underwrites off DU findings. feel free to call or email if you would like to discuss in more detail

49% DTI should be fine. The only way to tell for sure is to get the income, credit and assets perfect with a loan officer in applicaton form. Then we run it thru Fannie Mae's system called DU. If it comes back approve/elgibile as long as we put all the numbers in corrrectly you should be fine. That's why you have to give the loan officer everything they need so we can give you accurate numbers. Hope this helps please let us know if you need more information. With a 49% you obviously have no margin for error so it all has to be perfect. ... more
