Debt to Income Ratio:

While a high credit score is extremely important, having a strong debt to income (“DTI”) ratio can be even more vital in securing loans and financing. New legislation is requiring banks to comply with very strict ratios on loans. Knowing these laws are imperative in utilizing your personal credit for financial purposes.
