How to calculate DSCR?

For housing mortgage loans, DSCR refers to the ratio of monthly rental income of an investment property to total housing expenses. These expenses may include principal, interest, property tax, insurance, and HOA fees. Any expenses not actually incurred 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 borrowers' income with the monthly PITI (Principal, Interest, Taxes, Insurance) plus any HOA fees and other liabilities of the mortgaged property to decide if the loan qualifies.


Benefits of DSCR

No ratio DSCR is a loan product that does not verify or require the borrower's income because it does not involve the calculation of DTI (Debt-To-Income Ratio). Importantly, the minimum DSCR (Debt Service Coverage 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.This makes it a viable option even for those with low rental income, making it a good choice for borrowers with lower income or higher liabilities.

In addition, this program is also open to Foreign Nationals, especially those with F1 visas. If you're a foreign national and unable to qualify for a conventional mortgage loan, please contact us to discuss your loan scenario.
