## What's a Good DTI?

You should strive to keep your DTI below 36%, the lower it is, the greater chance you'll be eligible for a home loan or extension of credit. If you have a DTI of 20% or below that is considered excellent!

## How Do I Figure My DTI?

Simply add up your minimum monthly debt and divide it by your gross monthly income (income before taxes).

Example:
Gross Monthly Income: \$2,000.
Total Monthly Debt: \$400 (car payment of \$350 & credit card minimum payment \$50 = \$400)
400 / 2000 = 0.2, or 20%

Your DTI is 20%
