Is an Iowa physician mortgage loan right for you?
If you are reading this, you may be at the point of considering whether a physician mortgage loan will be the right choice for you. What makes a doctor mortgage the right fit? These loans are a great fit for physicians and professionals who know they are in a job they will stick with in the long term and who are committed to staying in their current town.
An Iowa physician mortgage loan is also great for someone who understands that, while burdensome in some ways, a higher interest rate is a good price to pay for the wide-ranging benefits associated with these mortgages.
Examples of medical doctors who take out physician loans in Iowa
Who are the Iowa physicians who have decided that a doctor mortgage is the best option for them? They range from those who are starting out in their careers to established physicians looking to increase their options and maximize their leverage.
An internist who doesn’t have a down payment
As an in-demand Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) internist, Tom’s career is a fait accompli. He is guaranteed a good salary for the duration of his career and steady employment. Unfortunately, however, Tom doesn’t have cash on hand for a 20 percent down payment.
With the amount of student debt he is still carrying and his debt-to-income ratio (DTI), the lack of a down payment doesn’t make him the best candidate for a conventional loan, despite his earning potential and solid career. A physician mortgage loan gives him an easy way to finance a home, with the added bonus of requiring no money down.
A dentist who wants to maximize leverage
Sara started her family dental practice over a decade ago. In the years since, she’s established a great reputation and her income is steady and impressive. She has squirreled away a pretty substantial savings and also made various investments. Now that the time has come to upgrade her small family from a condo to a home in her neighborhood just outside Ames, Sara is exploring her options.
She could sell some investment or draw on her savings to make a 20 percent down payment on a conventional loan, but she prefers to maximize her leverage. Instead, she takes out a doctor mortgage offered by a popular regional lender and receives great terms with 100% financing.
