Freddie Mac and FHA both let lenders use an estimated student loan payment of just 0.50% a month on their student loans which is probably lower than what their payments will be in February 2022. So, if you have a ton of student loan debt you should buy a home before January when you can use a smaller monthly payment on your student loans and be able to buy more home.
