Thursdays Thoughts – DTI & FICO buckets for risk threshold on FHA (cheat sheet)

#ThursdaysThoughts – DTI and FICO thresholds exist on all loans. But some are not written in stone. Once you run a ton of DU and get a sense of what’s being approved you can look at a 1008 and a 1003 and basically “see the approval” or know it’s got to be run. This really is somewhat an art. You have to understand the risk thresholds and what that particular DU results may be looking for on that file.

Here’s a cheat sheet if you will. It’s somewhat connected to the FHA manual guidelines, and there is a FICO bucket associated with it. You won’t find many 96.5% LTV FHA loans with under a 620 FICO approved over 50 DTI. It’s rare. It could happen with certain risk factors in favor, like compensating factors read from the 1003. But rare. The idea is this is all correlated to FICO and DTI in these buckets and if you’re a LO you should know these things.
