Medical Worker Loans
Work In The Medical Industry? You Get Amazing Benefits With A Medical Professional Loan!
Before a financial institution will lend money to any borrower, they take a look at the loan applicant’s credit record and financial history. This helps them determine the applicant’s ability to repay the loan, or what loan amount they’d be comfortable able to afford.
Lenders look at certain borrowers as being lower risk, and these borrowers get a special consideration during the approval process. If you’re a dentist, doctor, lawyer, accountant or another professional with a high annual income, you have a unique opportunity to save thousands on your mortgage through a medical professional loan.
These medical professional loans entitle some borrowers to extra perks depending on the lender. These perks include things like better interest rates, discounted fees, the ability to avoid lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI) payments, waived fees and a higher loan-to-value ratio.
How Medical Worker Professional Loans Work
You can use medical professional loans to buy your first home, purchase a second home, purchase an investment property, build a new home or switch from the mortgage you have currently to one with better rates (refinance).
These types of mortgages come set up just like you’d set up a regular mortgage. But, the difference is that if you’re a highly paid professional in the medical industry, you can get a loan that comes with benefits and features that lenders would give their low-risk borrowers. Even if you don’t have stellar credit or a long financial history, your profession can make financial institutions view you as lower risk.
For example, some financial institutions will let medical professionals borrow upwards of 90% of the property’s value that they plan to buy. Sometimes, they can borrow even more without having to take out and pay lenders’ mortgage insurance. This is a large benefit afforded to this type of mortgage.
Typically, if you were to borrow 80% or more of the property’s value with a regular home loan, financial institutions require you to carry lenders’ mortgage insurance. We have lenders who may even allow you to borrow up to 100% of the property’s value if you plan to be an owner-occupier, subject to criteria. Taking out a medical professional loan eliminates this additional cost and removes the lenders’ mortgage insurance requirement.
Comparing Loans for Medical Professionals
When you apply for a specialist home loan like a medical professional loan, there are several things you want to compare to ensure you get the best option possible. They include:
Ensure that you understand any and all fees associated with your loan. Also, make sure that you ask about which fees this loan waives or discounts before you sign and lock yourself in.
The interest rate could potentially add thousands over the life of the loan. It’s a good idea to compare rates from different lenders and check whether or not they offer discounts. Our brokers have a extensive understanding on which lenders offer Medical Professional Loans, we’ll do the shopping around for you.
Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance (LMI)
Arguably one of the best features of this loan is that you can borrow 90% and up of the property’s value without paying lenders’ mortgage insurance.
Loan to Value Ratio (LVR)
How much of the property’s value will the financial institution let you buy? This will vary from lender to lender. However, some medical professional loans offer up to 100% of the loan-to-value ratio if you plan to be an owner-occupier.
Other options and features can make this loan even better. Find out whether or not you can make additional payments without getting a penalty or if the loan’s benefits extend to things like an offset account or a redraw facility.
