Ideal Debt Income Ratio

Posted on: 30th Jul, 2007 09:47 pm
What is the ideal debt to income ratio. Mine is coming it alarming and with this percentage will I face problems in getting a new loan.
Hi Adlas,

The ideal debt-to-income ratio should not exceed 36% of your gross monthly income. And yours is coming 33% which is absolutely within the range. So I suppose you won't face any problem in getting a loan.

Hi Adlas,

Welcome to Mortgagefit discussion board.

If it is up to 36% then it is alright and you should not face problems with approval. A 28/36 ratio is considered good where 28% is percentage of gross income used for housing related expenses and 36% means percentage of gross income used for housing and recurring debt payments. But other factors are also to be considered like your income, credit history among others.

All these factors will work together in determination of your chances in getting a mortgage. Only dti will not be the primary factor on which lenders will base their decision on whether to approve your loan request or not.

33% looks good. Lenders generally see whether your debt to income ratio is between 20% and 39% or not. So, your 33% debt to income ratio is good enough to qualify a new loan. :)
