What other home buyers are asking about borrowing power

There's no point re-inventing the wheel. Here's what other savvy home buyers are frequently asking us. If you're still stuck for help, then why not check out all of our home loan FAQs.

When assessing how much you can borrow, lenders will use a figure known as your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) – that is, the amount of debt you have compared to your overall income. You can calculate your DTI by adding up the total amount of your debts and dividing by your gross annual income (before tax). The fewer debts you have, the lower the ratio – and the better your borrowing power is likely to be.

Before submitting your application to a lender, you may want to determine how much you might be able to borrow - the Pepper Money Borrowing Power Calculator estimates this based on the information that you enter.

Once you’ve gathered this information, it’s a simple process of entering the required information into the Pepper Money Borrowing Power Calculator.
