WEEKLY RATE – Fannie Mae Increases Debt To Income Ratio Limit to 50%

WEEKLY RATE – Fannie Mae Increases Debt To Income Ratio Limit to 50%

The big news this week is Fannie Mae’s implementation of DU version 10.1.

With DU 10.1, more borrowers will be able to qualify for a Fannie Mae conventional mortgage.

The most notable change is the increased max debt to income ratio to 50%.











If you were unable to qualify for a loan in the past due to debt to income ratio, please reach out to us. We would love the opportunity to look into this again for you.

Other notable changes are:

  • Easier approval for borrowers with disputed credit tradelines
  • ARM LTVs up to 95%
  • More self employed borrowers will be approved to use 1 year tax returns
  • Time Shares will no longer to be considered mortgages


Interest Rates Continue in Narrow Range Close to 2017 Lows

Interest rates continued to trade in a narrow range at or close to the lowest levels of 2017.

The Mortgage Backed Security Market closed last week trading up + 22 bps. Currently, well qualified borrowers are still able to get a rate in the 3%’s for less than a point.

I expect rates to continue in this narrow range for the time being barring an unforeseen event.

As always, have an amazing week and we’re always available if you need help with a new home loan purchase or refinance.
