Mortgage Terms & Disclosures

Debt-to-income Ratio

Debt-To-Income (DTI) ratio is monthly debt/expenses divided by gross monthly income

Qualifying debt-to-income ratios can vary by the loan program, but typically the lower this ratio the better. A lower ratio is better in terms of risk, but it won’t actually improve the terms of your mortgage. To learn more about your DTI ratio and how it will effect your loan talk to one of our loan professionals.

Loan-to-Value Ratio

Loan-to-Value (LTVs) and Combined Loan-to-Value (CLTVs) may vary by loan amount


Pre-approval is based on a preliminary review of credit information provided to Homefinity which has not been reviewed by Underwriting.
