As a Physician, your financial situation is uncommon. The structure of traditional mortgages does not align with your financial story. For this reason, Capitol Bank has created a mortgage program that flexes in the right places.
Who qualifies for a Physician’s Loan?
Physician’s loans are available for medical professional, including medical residents, fellows, and physicians.
What are the benefits of a Physician’s Loan?
Main benefits of a physician’s loan is that we don’t have to count the full student loan debt against you. In some situations, if the loan is in deferment, then we don’t have to count any of the student loan payments against you. If the loan is not in deferment, we only have to count 1% of the balance in a payment against you. So, it enables you to qualify more of a house. Also, we can do as little as 0% down in some situations for people to get in a home.
Would you ever recommend a traditional loan vs. a Physician’s Loan?
In some situations it might make sense to go with a 30 year fixed rate conforming loan versus an adjustable rate physician’s loan. Those situations would be if you have 20% down and don’t need the benefit of a lesser amount down, and also if your student loans are not inhibiting you against qualifying for the certain price of a house that you’re looking for.
What about doctors moving to the Madison area?
If you are relocating to the Madison area with a job in the medical field, we can pre-qualify you ahead of time. We have to have a contract for the new position, but you don’t need to have started the job before you close on the loan. In fact, we can close up to 60 days prior to you starting the new position. We would just need a copy of the contract for the new position to include the salary of the new position and the start date.
Little to no down payment and no private mortgage insurance (PMI)*.
