    Lender Says My Debt Ratios are Too High

    I have afforded a home before with the same debt ratios in the past so why am I not approved this time at a 45 debt ratio (per lender). What can I do as I like this home a lot?

    Another option for people with high debt ratios is the popular FHA loan. Although those now come with mortgage insurance for the life of the loan.

    I agree with Maria that an FHA loan is one possibility while adding a co-borrower to the initial loan request might help you too. Get in touch with a mortgage expert who can offer you a few choices.

    It sounds like you may be overloaded on debt which is not a good thing. Have you considered paying off some of your debts before proceeding with adding another debt of 20 to 30 years on a home loan?

    If you have a $1000 credit card that has more than $200 on the balance, you could be flagged as carrying too much debt on your accounts. Paying off as many balances as possible is a wise thing to do. At least now that you know the creditor thinks you have too much debt ratio, you can take the steps to correct the problem.
