What is my debt to income ratio or debt ratio?
Calculate your debt to income ratio or what percentage of your monthly income is used to pay fixed monthly costs. Enter your monthly income, monthly rent or mortgage expense, and other monthly expenses. This calculator will then show you your debt to income ratio which is the percentage your monthly income goes to pay monthly debts and expenses. In general, most mortgage lenders do not want your total monthly housing debt ratio or housing expenses (including property taxes, private mortgage insurance (PMI), and association dues) to exceed 28% of your total gross monthly income. And your total debt to income ratio percentage cannot exceed 36% of your total gross monthly income.
