What income are they looking for for the “making home affordable” program.?

I want to refinance, not modify. Do they want to see that I make alot of money or a little? I know to refinance you must show you make a decent amount of money. They are asking for my bill totals and income, does anyone know the ratio or what they are looking for?

    Rule of thumb is that you can afford a house that is 3 to 3-1/2 times your gross annual income.

    Rule of thumb #2: Your mortgage payment (principle, interest, property taxes, and insurance) should not exceed 28 to 33% of your gross monthly income. If you have no other debts (no car loans and you don’t carry a revolving balance on your credit cards) you may have slightly higher limits. Your total debt load (mortgage plus auto and other minimum debt payments) may not exceed 38 to 43% of your gross monthly income.

    Good luck!

    I do not know the ratio, however if you qualify (meet the requirements) for the refiance under the “Making Home Affordable” program, then they are looking for the truth. This works like a regular refiance and they will check out all information before the closing.
