What Is My Debt To Income Ratio?

Your debt to income ratio is the measure of how much you owe as a percentage of how much you earn. Basically it measures what percentage of your income you are spending on debt, including the servicing of that debt.

Lenders use this figure to determine whether they will extend credit to you in terms of a mortgage, home equity line of credit or sometimes, credit cards. While every lender has their own requirements and criteria for extending a loan, generally speaking a debt to income ratio under 40% is preferred. Over that number and you may have difficulty securing a loan or you may be required to pay a higher interest rate.

Calculating your own debt to income ratio before you seek financing can be very valuable. It can help you determine whether now is the time for you to look for a mortgage or loan, or if it would be better to pay down your debts beforehand. You can also get some idea of whether or not you will be considered a good risk to a potential lender.
