Misconception about Buying a Home

πŸ’° Debt shouldn't hold you back from your 🏑 dream of homeownership.

Many people think that if they have a lot of debt, like πŸŽ“ student loans or πŸš— car payments, they can't afford to buy a home.

But here's the truth: when you apply for a home loan, the lender only looks at the total of your minimum monthly payments, not the total debt amount. This means that even if you have a lot of debt, as long as your monthly payments aren't too high relative to your πŸ’° income, you can still qualify for a home loan.

For example, πŸ₯ doctors with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical school debt can buy a home out of college as they can buy with very low money down and their incomes are very high so they have a low debt to income ratio.

So don’t think you can’t buy a home if you have debt, understand how to leverage debt to your benefit. πŸ’ͺ
