If you’re a physician and are looking to finance a home purchase, you have a new option. Silverton Mortgage is offering a loan specifically designed for medical professionals. Read on to learn more about it.


Who Qualifies?


The Silverton Doctor Loan is available to specific types of medical professionals. They include:


·         Medical Doctors


·         Medical Residents


·         DDS


·         DMD


·         Doctors of Optometry


·         Doctor of Podiatric


·         Doctor of Osteopathy


These are the only medical professionals eligible for the Silverton Doctor Loan. At the time that you submit your application, you’ll have to provide an active license to establish that you are a credentialed medical professional in the State of Georgia.


The Silverton Doctor Loan covers 15- and 30-year fixed-rate mortgages. It also covers 7/1 and 10/1 ARM lending products.


The Silverton Doctor Loan can only be used for owner-occupied properties.


What If I Still Have Student Loans?


Having student loans on deferment does not disqualify you for the Silverton Doctor Loan. In fact, if you’re a medical resident, it’s quite likely that you do have loans on deferment and the loan is designed to accommodate that, with certain conditions.


Medical residents who have their loan deferred must go through a Reasonableness test. The test takes into account your current income and the income you’re likely to earn in the future. If there’s a gap between when your fully-executed contract begins and the closing, that, too, can be accommodated. If you have enough reserves on hand to cover the expense, plus one month, you should qualify for the loan.
