The loan qualification standards used by mortgage lenders are an important guideline. You can typically get that old standby – the fixed-rate, 30 year mortgage – if no more than 28 percent of your gross monthly income goes for mortgage principal and interest, property taxes and property insurance (PITI). In addition, as much as 36 percent of your gross monthly income can go to regular monthly costs – PITI plus car payments, credit card debt, school costs, etc. In addition, because they have
