    The lender I’m working with has my DTI maxed out to qualify me for the loan I need. I mentioned the Home Sweet Texas program and he said that this program could force them to lower my DTI which would mean less money I would be approved for. Do you know if the program requires a certain DTI or should I start looking for a new lender? Thank you for your time!
