Am I Borrowing Too Much?

FHA Common Question #46

FHA guidelines are set up to help you get the amount you are qualified for and set up conditions to allow you to successfully buy an FHA home. What the FHA mortgage rules cannot do is determine whether or not you can meet your monthly obligations. It's up to you to make the call; if you begin the process of buying a home only to realize you can't really afford the size of the payments, immediately discuss the situation with a housing counselor and your lender.

The FHA has many programs set up to assist you with getting into a good home at a fair price, but if you have doubts about your ability to pay, waiting and getting some housing counseling may be a safer bet. A delinquent loan affects your credit rating; waiting until you are sure to purchase a home does not hurt at all.
