The Fannie Mae Selling Guide is a comprehensive guide for lenders who sell loans to Fannie Mae. Although the Guide is targeted toward lenders, it also contains information that applies to appraisers. After all, the appraisal is an important part of the loan documentation. Many people consider the Selling Guide to be guidelines; the word "guide" is in the title.

 · Last October 31, Fannie Mae announced updates to its Selling Guide for lenders making mortgages that conform to its standards. One update makes changes to its earlier guidance on excluding mortgage debts that a borrower is obligated but another party is making the payments from the borrower’s DTI ratio calculation.
