Debt-to-Income Ratio (DTI) - What Counts Against You?

By
Mortgage and Lending with The Mortgage Experts at America's Mortgage, a Division of Cherry Creek Mortgage Co. NMLS #241555

The debt-to-income ratio (DTI) is the ratio of your debts divided by your income, and is one of the main things that determines how large a mortgage you can qualify for. But do all of your debts count against you?

The answer is no, not all debts count against you when determining the size of the mortgage you can get. Here is a list of some of the things that do NOT count against you when a lender calculates your DTI:

  • car insurance
  • electricity
  • water
  • gas
  • sewer
  • phone - land line
  • phone - cell
  • Internet 
  • cablecollection accounts
  • health insurance 

In basic terms, every debt that appears on a credit report (except collection accounts) needs to be included in the DTI, and everything that does not appear on the credit report does not need to be included.
