## Can you get a mortgage making 20 000 a year?

At $20,000 a year in income, you are making $1,666 a month. Switching to a 5–1 ARM would drop your initial core mortgage payment down to $900 a month or still more than half your gross income before even considering property taxes and insurance. Even if you can get this mortgage, doing so is probably a very bad idea.

## How much income do I need for a 200k mortgage?

This rule says that your mortgage payment (which includes property taxes and homeowners insurance) should be no more than 28% of your pre-tax income, and your total debt (including your mortgage and other debts such as car or student loan payments) should be no more than 36% of your pre-tax income.

## How many times my salary can I borrow for a mortgage?

Every lender works within the parameters of its own guidelines, therefore, some can be more generous than others. Most mortgage lenders use an income multiple of 4-4.5 times your salary, some offer a 5 times salary mortgage and a few will use 6 times salary, under the right circumstances.
