So, what do all these benefits mean for you? Keep reading to find out!
- 100% Financing: Physician loans provide the ability to finance up to 100% of the purchase price of a home, meaning no down payment is required! That also means you won’t have to pay private mortgage insurance (PMI) because Physician Bank covers that cost.
- Flexible Down Payment Options: Not only are physician loans able to finance up to 100% of the purchase price, but they also offer flexible down payment options for those who want or need less than 100%.
- Higher Loan-to-Value Ratio: When you’re looking for a physician loan, one of the most important factors to look at is Loan-to-Value Ratio. What does that mean? Simply put, Loan-to-Value Ratio is the percentage of your home’s value that will be used to secure your loan. For example, if you have a Loan-to-Value Ratio of 80%, that means your mortgage will amount to 80% of the home’s value. It’s important to understand this ratio before you apply for a physician loan, since it can affect your interest rate and other terms. Physician loans allow for a higher loan-to-value ratio so you may get approved for a loan amount that was previously unavailable with more traditional mortgages.
- Higher debt-to-income ratio allowance: physician loans often allow for higher debt-to-income ratios than other types of mortgage options, giving you more financial flexibility.
- Student Loan Payment Calculation Flexibility: Physician loans are designed to make it easier to qualify for a loan by considering your student-loan payments in the calculation of your total debt.
- Flexible Repayment Options: Physician loans offer flexible repayment options, which means you can choose between a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate loan depending on your needs and budget.
- Competitive Interest Rates: Physicians will get access to competitive interest rates due to their unique financial situation, so you could end up saving money over the life of the loan with this benefit.
- Tax Benefits: Homeowners may be eligible for certain tax benefits such as mortgage interest deductions, which could help you save money at tax time.
- Credit Score Impact: Physician loans can help improve your credit score with on-time payments and the ability to demonstrate financial responsibility.
- No Mortgage Insurance Required: Because Physician Bank covers the costs for private mortgage insurance (PMI), you won’t have to pay an extra fee each month that adds up over the life of the loan.
- Fast Prequalification: Most lenders offer fast prequalification so you can get an idea of how much you can borrow and if you qualify for the loan.
- High Loan Limit: Unlike other mortgages, Physician Bank loans have a high loan limit – up to 3 million – even higher if you have excellent credit. Most likely, you can borrow what you need to finance your home purchase.
- Free Financial Analysis: Physician Bank provides free financial analysis services to help you figure out how much house you can afford and how to best use your physician loan.
- Easy Refinancing: Physician loans make it easy to refinance if you need a lower interest rate or better terms.
- Flexible Closing Costs: Physician Bank offers flexible closing costs with physician loans, which means you could end up paying less in the long run and have more money available for down payment and other expenses.
- Personalize Your Mortgage: Physician loans allow you to personalize your mortgage so you can get the payment terms, interest rate and other features that best suit your needs.
