How to calculate DSCR?

For housing mortgage loans, DSCR refers to the ratio of monthly rental income of an investment house to total housing expenses(such as principal, interest, land tax, insurance and management fee (if some expenses are not actually incurred, it will be recorded as 0)). The lower the ratio, the greater the risk of the loan. It can be expressed in the following:


We offer "No ratio DSCR" for our clients, which means the ratio can be down to "0". In our conventional loan products, we need to compare our income with the monthly PITIA(Principle/ Interest/ Tax/ Insurance/ HOA) and other liabilities of the mortgaged house to decide if the loan can qualify.


Benefits of DSCR

No ratio DSCR, a loan product that does not verify the income, has no requirements for the income of borrower because it does not involve the calculation of DTI. And the minimum DSCR ratio can be as low as 0. Even if the rental income is low, we can still do it! This is a good choice for borrowers with low income or more liabilities.

Besides, Foreign Nationals are acceptable for this program as well, especially with F1 visa. If you’re a foreigner, and can not qualify with a conventional mortgage loan, contact us and obtain your loan scenario.
