Hi Kellyw96,

The only option you'll have is an FHA mortgage. Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac loans require your DTI to be under 45% but FHA will allow up to 54.99%.

Another big concern is what type of mortgage you have on your rental property & how long it's been used as a rental property.

Here's why:

If you have an FHA mortgage on your rental property, the requirements for qualifying for another FHA mortgage get a little sticky. For example: Your rental property must have at least 25% equity in it & you'll have to have an appraisal done to prove it.

The only other thing I can think of is to have another lender (like me) review your tax returns to see if the DTI really is 50%

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Hi Sophia,

The best person to speak with is a loan officer. Your credit may actually not be as bad as you think.

It is a normal fee; however, you Realtor should have disclosed that information on your first initial meeting. It can and can not come out of commissions it depends on your relationship with your Realtor, but I would have to agree if you have received outstanding sevice from your Realtor just pay it. You will have what you want which is a beautiful home and a relationship for a lifetime. Most Realtors have fees to pay as well. At least you know for the next go around what questions to ask.

Good Luck and Congratulations!

Thanks for all you replies and responses. After much research and consideration of your responses, I think we have decided to go the route of continuing to rent for a couple more yrs and then buy straight up with cash. We should be ready to do so in two yrs or less yrs. Thanks again. ... more
