How to Calculate DTI
The ratio is expressed as a percentage, and lenders use it to determine how well you manage monthly debts and if you can afford to repay a loan.
Generally, lenders view consumers with higher DTI ratios as riskier borrowers.
To calculate your debt-to-income ratio, add up all of your monthly debts – rent or mortgage payments, student loans, personal loans, auto loans, credit card payments, child support, alimony, etc. – and divide the sum by your monthly income.
