  • Owner-occupied Primary Residence – An owner-occupied primary residence is owned by an individual or family and used as their primary residence. Owner-occupied primary residences are typically eligible for lower interest rates and other favorable terms on mortgage loans. If you are considering buying a home, it is essential to understand the difference between an owner-occupied primary residence and other types of properties.
  • 1-4-Unit Residential Property – If you are looking at buying a 1-4-unit residential property, Physician Bank offers loans on duplexes, fourplexes, and multi-family homes that contain individual units. Units can be side by side or stacked on top of each other. Location, condition, and financing are all considerations when buying a multi-unit residential property. Getting pre-approval can help you make the best offer when you are close to purchasing. If you want to invest in real estate, a two-plex or fourplex may be a good option.

Do you own rental property? – Rental income can be used to help you qualify for a mortgage loan. (Some restrictions exist.) To use rental income for a mortgage loan, the rental income must come from a property you own, the rental income must be consistent, and the rental property must be in good condition.

If you are considering a mortgage loan, ask your lender about the reserve requirement. Physician Bank has offerings that will eliminate the reserve requirement. Our initial application will start the Physician Loan process; we will follow up with additional questions to determine if you need a reserve requirement.

What is a Physician Mortgage Loan?

A physician loan is a mortgage loan specifically for medical professionals. It is designed to help doctors and other medical professionals buy a home with a low-down payment and no private mortgage insurance (PMI).

To qualify for a physician loan, you must be a licensed medical professional with a signed employment contract. It would be best if you also had a good credit score and a debt-to-income ratio (DTI) of no more than 50%.
