The debt-to-income ratio is all of your monthly debt payments divided by your gross monthly income. This figure is one way that lenders measure the ability to make monthly payments to repay the money you’re planning to borrow.

DTI is calculated by adding accounts such as credit cards, vehicle loans, student loans, and housing (rent or mortgage) to the monthly payments and dividing it by the monthly gross (before tax income. Living costs such as electricity or meals do not require that.

Your debt-to-income ratio helps decide whether you can afford a mortgage loan. The ability to handle the current mortgage and a new home loan is shown by a low DTI ratio. But since it shows the budget is stretched so thin, a higher DTI ratio will make it more difficult to apply for a mortgage. You don’t have enough revenue,  to offset further loans.

If you want to purchase a house but you have too much debt to apply for a mortgage, you might want to work on raising the debt-to-income ratio first:
