Whether you are considering the purchase of your first home or trading up to the home your family frequently fantasizes about, there are three crucial questions you must know the answer to:

2.      What is the minimum FICO score required to qualify for a mortgage?

3.      What is the maximum Back-End DTI Ratio allowed?
