Mortgage Program Flowchart for Qualifying a mortgage loan in Kentucky
“Do I Qualify for a Mortgage Loan?” – RealEstate.com Flowchart
Exceptions to flowchart above.
1. Having a DTI ratio over 36% will not prevent a borrower from qualifying. A Kentucky household can comfortably afford a mortgage with a DTI ratio up to 45% or 55% with a VA or FHA loan with compensating factors such as high credit scores (740+),reserves equal to 12 months or more, large down payment or savings.
2. Down Payment.
There are several loan programs in Kentucky that allow a borrower to buy a home with little to $0 down payment. In fact, the USDA loan has a lower payment even when they have no down payment than compared to using an FHA loan with 3.5% down payment. Also there is VA loans which require no down payment if you are a veteran or active duty military, and last but not least, there is KHC or Kentucky Housing which offers down payment assistance on FHA loans in Kentucky so you can buy a home with zero down payment.
