    TOPIC: feasibility of obtaining doctors’ loan for 1st year resident seeking to buy $600K house (LA real estate market)

    A new resident grosses about $4,500/mth.  The monthly expense for a $600K house would be over $3,000 a month.  Parents are willing to help with monthly expenses, but does this debt to income ratio make it impossible to get a physicians’ loan?


    First reply from ENT Doc:

    This is a bad idea on several levels.

    I couldn’t have said it better myself.
    A resident should not be buying a 10X income house.

    Are any replies needed beyond what ENT doc already said?

    Shrinkwrap this idea! No, you won’t get a loan, and thank the banks for not giving you a loan.
