This pushed my DTI up to around 65%.<br/><br/>So I decided I'm going to wait till I file my 2013 tax returns in late January. I'm doing this because my rental was rented out all year. Doing this will show about a $1000 a month income, and push my DTI down to around 48% or so.<br/><br/>I'll also have some CC debt paid off by then to. So it seems like it makes sense to wait, but then I keep reading about these changes coming in January, and I'm wondering if maybe I should do my HARP refi right now.<br/><br/>Help please??<br/><br/>THANKS!!! :)<br \><br \>7 replies Tue, 26 Nov 2013 22:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/HARP-and-the-upcoming-federal-mortgage-guidelines-in-January-any-affect-on-HARP/520214/ 2013-11-26T22:39:00Z
