Personal finances play a large role in loan pre-approvals. All finance companies evaluate your assets, income, credit and debts. These determine whether you can obtain a loan and the amount. The following is an overview of income vs. debt ratio for MA financing pre-approvals.
Lenders will consider your gross monthly earnings. This includes only items that can be documented. Wages are the most common source of income. You will be asked to present documents (such as W-2 forms) for the last 2 years, giving them a sense of how stable it is. They may ask for explanations for any unusual items, such as changes in earnings or inconsistent figures. Alternate types of income can include alimony, real estate investments, and stocks. Anything that you attempt to use as income must have acceptable documentation. A history of earnings and possibility of future earnings can be important. The documentation standard may vary among companies and some exceptions may also apply. It is important to tell your mortgage consultant about all possible sources to find out what can or cannot be used.
Debt describes all recurring obligations such as charge cards and installment loans. The exact payment amount on loans and other structured debt are used. For revolving debt like credit cards, minimum monthly payments are entered in the calculations. These figures are typically noted in your credit report. Some companies may agree to exclude debts with less than one year left or that you can prove another individual is responsible for. The figures are totaled to figure out specific monthly debt.
An Overview Of Income Vs. Debt Ratio For MA Financing Pre-approvals
Mortgage companies compare the total income to debt to come up with the income vs. debt ratio, which must remain under a certain level. Additionally, mortgage payments and your monthly debt must also remain under a certain percentage in order for your loan to be approved. The particular percentage will vary among financing companies and from program to program.
For instance, a lender may allow 28% for mortgage payments and 40% for total debt. Based on these figures, a borrower making 60,000 per year (5,000 per month) would be allowed up to a 1,400 per month mortgage payment and 2,000 per month in total debt. Bear in mind that this is merely an example and considers only the income versus debt part of the financial analysis that can be completed. There are many other factors, such as credit history and program specific requirements. It is important to consult with a local mortgage company for full details on income vs. debt ratio for MA financing pre-approvals for your personal finances.
