High debt ratio -- sell stock and buy bonds to improve it?

I have no employment income but have a rental property and some stock.  Should I sell the stock and buy bonds just to get income to raise my debt ratio?  What sort of ratio do I need?  Or are there lenders out there that will take the stock into account?  Other terms of the deal are excellent (fico, reserves, LTV, etc).

What kind on numbers are you talking here? As to rental income, underwriter will look at the tax return to see what you net from the rental. As to buying bonds, they will want to see a history of investment income, as well they probably will not count the future income for a new bond purchase.

Bob,

Complete a loan request. Fill out ALL fields and the Comment to Lender Section. See what responses you receive. Interview a couple that look good to you and they may also suggest some other options. ... Good luck, Rudi
