What Debt/Income ratio range should a potential buyer need to be in with mid 600s credit score?

Most lenders like to see 40% or less including what ever new loan you are applying for. Credit score really does not effect that percentage at all. He have seem people with high 700 scores not get approved because that number is out of balance. Lenders started looking at DTI much closer since the 08 - 09 slow down. The other number that gets more attention these days is the credit card balance. They like to see 60% and above available. Remember, the DTI number is based on provable income. A W2 or 2 years of tax returns for self employed.
Let us know if we can help.
Thank you,

Interesting that you don't have to file a tax return showing your govt income even if it is tax-exempt. When you apply for a loan, they take all income into consideration.
Another thing is that many lenders have a minimum amount that they want to finance, or else it's not worth their time, but there's nothing to keep you from financing more and paying it off early. I think in Texas, you can pay off a loan without penalty after the first year. Ken should have all of the info on that.
