As we hear more and more about mounting student debt and scrambling to find a solution that will help people 'get out from under it' we get hit with yet another obstacle for those trying to obtain a mortgage with student debt.

FHA mortgages are the most common mortgage obtained because they have the lowest down payment and credit score required. This is a federally backed mortgage and has the most flexibility for borrowers. FHA allowed student debt payments that were deferred 12 months or more to be excluded from their their debt-to-income ratio and therefore would allow them to qualify rather than be denied for high debt.

FHA has recently changed that rule and now includes deferred student loan debt into their debt-to-income calculation to the tune

Say you are approved for $200,000 and the interest rate is 3.75%. Your approximate monthly mortgage payment would be $926.23 per month Principal and Interest.

If the interest rate jumped to 4.75% your payment would jump to $1042.29 P & I per month or to get the same payment of $926.23 your purchase price would drop to $178,000. That is a $22,000 reduction in your purchasing power.

Today I want to talk about mortgage financing. This is the first and most important step you will take in starting your home buying journey. This step is best taken in advance of your home purchase to make sure there are no unforseen issues on your credit report.

What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a legal instrument to secure financing for a home with a  promise to pay the loan back. Its just like any other loan but much better because of the tax benefits, such as the mortgage interest deduction which can save you money on your taxes.

So how do you get a mortgage?

They will pull your credit and ask you questions about your income and debt.
