A debt-to-income ratio is calculated by dividing all your monthly debt payments by your gross monthly income. Lenders use this number to determine your ability to repay the money you plan to borrow on time. For a FHA Loan, borrows can have a higher debt-to-income ratio compared to a standard mortgage debt-to-income requirements.
Private mortgage insurance (PMI) is a form of mortgage insurance that may be required with certain types of loans. If you default on your loan, PMI protects your lender. In the case of a FHA Loan, a certain down payment is required to waive PMI. However, FHA insurance is often cheaper than traditional PMI.
