Home loans for high debt ratios

 

Are you finding it hard to complete the purchase on your home due to high debt? Has your bank recently depressed you and your family from buying that perfect house because of overlays over too much debt or past financial issues? If the answers to these questions are YES maybe you need to seek a home loan for high debt ratios.

Debt-to-income ratio shows how much of a percentage of your income you are paying towards your debt each month. High debt-to-income ratio means that a larger part of your income goes towards paying off your debt each month while a lower ratio means a smaller portion of your income is spent on paying off debt.

Those planning on purchasing a home will find getting approved for home loans for high debt ratios is almost out of reach. Next, we will share 3 tips that will help you qualify for home loans for high debt ratio. It’s important, however, to remember that each and every lender has their own different lending requirements also called overlays, therefore each will analyze an applicant’s debt-to-income ratio differently.

To increase your chances of qualifying for a home loan, let’s take a look at how you can overcome your debt-to-income ratio and qualify to purchase that dream home!

1. Create A Plan - Unless you have a dire need to purchase a home and you cannot wait, we suggest that you contact us first seeking advice on which accounts to invest extra payments to reduce your debt ratio. Believable or not it makes a difference the order paying off student loans, credit cards, car payments, furniture or any other type of loans whether installment or revolving accounts. In an ideal scenario, having a debt ratio under 36% can increase your chances of qualifying for a home loan even though we have approved loans woth ratios over 50%.

2. Increasing Down Payment - Although paying a large down payment might not be a viable option for some applicants, it is something that if possible we suggest. Borrowers with IRAs or other retirement accounts need to consider the savings in interest and PMI expense vs increase in value of such assets. Not only may be a good investment but show the lender the seriousness of your decision of purchasing a home as well as indicating your commitment towards the investment, thus increasing your chances of qualifying for home loans for high debt ratio.

3. Government Assistance - If you find that home loans for high debt ratios is not an option that is available to you with private lenders, then turning to government home loan programs is the best possible option for you. These home loan programs were designed and developed by the government to promote homeownership by providing financial assistance to those unable to purchase a home through any other means due to lack of financial availability or a good credit history.

Created by the Federal Housing Administration, the FHA home loan is issued by approved FHA lenders and provides the following benefits:

* FHA loans allow the borrower to get approval for the home loan despite high debt ratio.
* You can purchase a home with down payment as low as 3.5%.
* There is lower mortgage insurance with a FHA loan.

    Would recommend 1000%!!!!! What an experience! Called Joan about buying a home and within 2 months, we looked at A LOT of homes, found one we loved, and closed within 30 days. Before calling Clear lending, I was stressed about the home buying process due to the COVID virus, never thought we would be able to close during a pandemic. Joan made the home buying experience simple and straightforward, answering all questions via phone and WhatsApp, and we also made sure to send all needed documentation in, when requested, to ensure a smooth close... The closing process was stressful due to the anticipation of wanting the process to come to an end, however, that's normal and Joan was readily available answering my never-ending questions. Joan truly cares about his clients and was in my corner throughout the process. Superexcellent home buying experience and a great person to work with. Thanks, Joan/clear lending!!!!

    Joan is a great loan officer. I couldn't have asked for a better person. I had one loan officer that felt like she couldn't get me approved. Joan stepped in and was effective and very assertive. He made sure I got approved!
