Are you considering purchasing a home and wondering what type of mortgage you qualify for? Understanding the key factors that lenders assess can help you prepare and improve your chances of securing the right mortgage. In this blog post, we’ll break down the main factors that determine your mortgage eligibility and explain how an independent mortgage broker can help you navigate the process.

Credit Score:

A crucial factor in determining your mortgage eligibility is your credit score. A higher credit score signals to lenders that you’re a responsible borrower, which can help you secure a lower interest rate. On the other hand, a lower score may limit your mortgage options.


Lenders evaluate your income to ensure you have the ability to repay the loan. They typically assess your employment history, current salary, and any other sources of income.

Debt-to-Income Ratio:

Your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio, which compares your debt to your income, is another factor lenders consider. A higher DTI ratio may make it more difficult to qualify for a mortgage.

Employment Status:

Your employment status, including the length of time you’ve been with your current employer, can impact your mortgage eligibility.

Property Value:

Lenders also assess the value of the property you’re interested in purchasing. A higher property value may provide you with more mortgage options.
