Yours is a noble calling but… So. Much. Work.
You spent years making your way through undergraduate and then medical, dental, pharmacy, chiropractic or veterinary school. You completed your residency – maybe even a fellowship or board certification. Phew!
After all the years of dedication you’ve launched your career and are ready to buy a home. But all that time in school and training has left you with limited savings and (possibly) a good bit of student loan debt. What’s a doc to do?
Delayed gratification… rewarded
I’ve got some good news for you. There are special programs designed just for you. These loans exist to meet the unique needs of medical professionals.
Guaranteed rate offers several loan programs for medical professionals. Each has specific guidelines. The benefits of these programs fall into a few general categories:
No down payment or low down payment options
Doctors’ programs allow a low down payment or even no down payment. Down payment options of as little as 0% are allowed on loans from $100,000 to $1 million or as little as 5% down options on loans up to $1.5 million.
House hackers welcome!
Our physician’s programs include options to purchase a 2-unit property with no down payment option up to a $1 million loan or 5% down payment option up to a $1.5 million loan. With rent from another unit, you can offset some of your housing expense and make your home into an investment too.
No mortgage insurance
Our doctors’ loans do not require mortgage insurance – even when putting less than 20% down.
Student loan flexibility
A universal feature of the doctors’ programs we offer is that the future payments on student loan debt that is deferred for at least a year after closing can be disregarded when qualifying for your loan. This is especially helpful for medical residents.
Buy before starting a new job
Our doctors’ loans allow you to use a signed contract to qualify for your loan. This feature will allow you to close on your home purchase up to 90 days before you begin a new job.
The requirements to qualify vary from one program to another. In general, you must either be a medical resident, fellow, medical teaching professor or practicing physician, chiropractor, pharmacist, dentist or veterinarian.
We offer doctors’ programs for all of the following medical practitioners:
● Medical Resident
