Monthly Payment

Your ability to obtain a loan for a new home purchase is based on a number of factors. Lenders typically make lending decisions based on three key ratios: (1) Loan-to-value ratio (LTV), which represents the ratio of the loan amount to the value of the home. Lenders ideally want to see an 80% LTV, meaning a 20% down payment is preferred; (2) Housing Ratio, which represents the percentage of your total income that goes towards housing expenses; and (3) Debt-to-Income Ratio, which represents your total debt payments, plus housing expenses as a percentage of your total income. Lenders will typically look at any of these ratios as constraints, meaning once any of these ratio limits is reached, the amount of the loan will be capped.

The results are hypothetical to illustrate general scenarios. The calculators cannot determine that a specific Flagstar product is available to you or that it is the right solution for your circumstances. All Flagstar Bank products require an application and an approval process. Please contact us directly so we can assist you. The calculators also do not provide investment, legal, tax, or accounting advice. Consult with a tax advisor, attorney, or other financial professional for guidance about your situation.
