Remember, shoot for a ratio of 36% or below when shopping for a mortgage. In general, a 40% DIR is pretty good. Take steps to lower it as needed.

With the way the housing market has been, there's no telling if lenders are looking for even lower ratios.

Keep in mind that there are two strategies to lower this figure: decrease the payments or increase your income. It doesn't hurt to do both!
