The sum of the monthly mortgage, interest, tax and insurance payments must be equal or less than 50% of your gross (pre-taxes) monthly salary.
DISCLAIMER: The figures above are based upon FHA's debt-to-income ratio which is a ratio of total monthly debt payments (housing expense, installment debts, and so on) to gross monthly income. The FHA has determined the acceptable ratio to be 50% and it is used as a guide. In circumstances where the ratio exceeds 50%, the FHA automatic underwriter can consider the ratio in conjunction with all other credit factors. Calculations by this tool are believed to be accurate, yet are not guaranteed. Further review is necessary to obtain an exact qualification.
