It depends. If both borrowers qualify, then both being on title and on the loan makes it easier if one passes. It can also protect both parties in the event of divorce. I encourage married borrowers to apply and consummate the loan jointly. If either party's credit scores or debt causes a problem with the viability of closing the loan, then a more in-depth conversation is had. You indicate your wife has no income, YET. I'd be happy to discuss in more detail the pros and cons of joint vs separate. Reach out to me.

One reason to add another if that person doesn't help by providing "qualifying income" has to do with simply making things a little bit easier when the other person passes away. Another is, depending on the state, is to protect the persons rights to the property during divorce. I lend in MN WI IA SD ND. Find me at, Cambria Mortgage, NMLS 274132
